Heritage Rose Pruning Workshop
Saturday, February 29th
Rose Expert, Stan Marciel of Garden Valley Roses, led a Rose Pruning Workshop on Saturday, February 29th, 2020. We are so thankful for his guidance and expertise in helping us to properly prune the heritage roses that grace the "Gallery Garden".
Watch for a grand display of blooms around Mother's Day. If you haven't visited before, the garden is directly behind the gallery.
Its 2020 - Happy New Year from AODC Gallery, your local source for gifts and fine art.
We are excited to start our 10th year on the Divide with a continued celebration of the Arts
AODC gallery currently has twelve local artists. Artists have joined, left for various reasons, and new ones have replaced the vacancies. The gallery is open to artists that provide something new and different. If you or someone you know is looking to join the gallery , the application and information regarding membership is on the website, www.artonthedivide.com.
AODC artists continue to "refresh" the gallery monthly with new art. Providing the community with workshops to teach various art techniques and receptions to showcase the art are typical of our monthly offerings. We welcome feedback from the community to help us plan workshops. What would you like to learn? Past workshops have included jewelry, stained glass, mask making, collage and rose-pruning.
Directly behind the gallery is a historic rose garden that is maintained by the artists. We have been fortunate to have the Divide Garden Club help with rose-pruning, and hope to continue with that collaboration. They have also been generous in awarding the gallery many years of grants to help with this maintenance.
AODC gallery is pleased to provide a space for local student art, under the leadership of Susan Sasano, a local volunteer. She reaches out to our local schools and will switch out the artwork regularly.
