On Friday, August 28, 2015, Buffalo Arts Studio (BAS) and Grassroots Gardens will come together to host a harvest festival. What makes this harvest festival so unique is the celebration of Buffalo’s community gardens and art, both of which go together like peas and carrots. At the event, volunteers will be on hand to help visitors create their very own garden signs, as well as artistic prints using produce grown in Grassroots Gardens’ gardens.
The works of a couple of notable artists will be on display during the event. Both artists incorporate various spiritually nurtured, natural elements into their works.
Maude White (You Were Wild Here) – The artist’s intricate paper works are so delicate and fine, yet at the same time structurally resilient in the way that they are unbelievably hand cut.
Allan Hebeler (Man. Nature) – The artist’s works highlight the tensions between man and nature, in a way that must be visually absorbed, deconstructed in the mind, and regurgitated as mindful messages.
Community GARTening will also feature photos of many of the 94 Grassroots Community Gardens in Buffalo. The images will be displayed in BAS’s Community Space. To think that there are now close to 100 Grassroots Gardens in Buffalo is remarkable!
Refreshments will include donations from Ashker’s as well as freshly picked community garden offerings. Live music. Donation based wine and beer will also be available. This event is free and open to the public. Families and children are welcome.
