Nature-inspired Garden Art Fair returns to Reiman Gardens

The Garden Art Fair is back at Reiman Gardens this year for its 18th season after being canceled last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The event, which features nature-inspired art from more than 50 artists, will be held Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

“We have a lot of new artists this year,” Beth Wessel-Kroeschell, events coordinator for Reiman, said. “We have some that are returning, but we certainly have a lot of new ones that we’ve never had before. So that’s very exciting.”

She said she was concerned that, although there’s been a groundswell of new artists registering, organizers haven’t heard from some of the loyal artists who have been there in the past.

“I think the pandemic may have had an impact on them not being able to sell their artwork at these kinds of shows for a whole year,” Wessel-Kroeschell said. “The newer artists may have had more time to focus on their artwork so that might be why they are just starting out, but I think it had the opposite effect on some people.”

Reiman Gardens’ annual Garden Art Fair will be held Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

She said Reiman Gardens seems to be busy now that things are opening back up.

“I feel like there is a huge push to get out, to see things, to see the arts and be out and about,” she said.

Featured artists will display and sell their work in a variety of mediums, such as jewelry, painting, pottery, glass, woodwork, photography, sculpture and fabric arts.
