Back By Popular Demand: ROSE PRUNING WORKSHOP
The historic rose garden behind Art On the Divide Cooperative Gallery has benefited in the past by visits from local rose experts Stan Marciel and Mary Hobblit as they demonstrated the proper and effective way to prune and shape rose bushes. Once again we are fortunate to welcome Stan Marciel, owner of Garden Valley Roses, to our garden to lead this popular workshop. Participants will have the opportunity to practice pruning on some of the historic roses and cuttings will be available at the end of the demonstration to take home for propagation and planting in their own gardens.
Please mark your calendar for Saturday, Feb. 27th at 10 am and join us in learning this valuable skill. No registration is necessary and those wishing to participate are encouraged to bring their own clean, sharpened pruners. Pruning implements should be clean and sharp enough so that the rose bushes are not damaged and the new cuttings are in good shape for propagation and planting. Participants should wear a mask to this outdoor event for Covid-19 safety.
AODC is located at 6295 Main Street, Georgetown
Its 2020 - AODC Celebrates a Decade on the Divide, 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.
