Filoli wants to show how sculpture can be used in gardens to replace water guzzling landscaping. The Woodside historic estate is holding its Summer Garden Sculpture Exhibit now through Sunday, Sept. 7.
A reception for some of the artists featured in the exhibit will be held Thursday, June 26, from 5 to 7 p.m.
Meet the Artists days are set for Saturday, July 12, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., and Sunday, July 13, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. A Gifts of Nature Calligraphy Exhibit will be on display during the July 13 event.
Sculptures by local artists will be displayed throughout Filoli's garden, with pieces in courtyards, terraces, and fields.
Artists include Jeff Owen, Archie Held, Grant Irish, Marcia Donahue, Richard Starks and Molly Stone from Cohn-Stone Studios, and Linda Hansen Mau, Nancy Christie, Henriette Ponte, Nessy Barzilay and Corrina Mori from the Orchard Valley Ceramic Art Guild.
Admission to the artists' reception is free for members or with paid admission to Filoli for non-members, but reservations are required. Make reservations and get more information at filoli.org, or by phone at 364-8300, ext. 508, Monday through Friday, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Reservation deadline is Friday, June 20.
