FALLBROOK – Award-winning painters, unique craftsmen, a guitarist and a classical string trio will highlight the artists-and-artisans element at the upcoming, 6th annual Fallbrook Garden Tour on May 22, hosted by the Fallbrook Garden Club. The artists will exhibit their work and give demonstrations of their creative processes at each of the seven homes and gardens on the tour.
This year’s artists feature noted watercolorist and linocut creator Helen Shafer Garcia and floral, landscape and portrait artist Elizabeth Taft. Linda Stryker, creator of gourd art; quilt-maker Barbara Anderson; and wreath-creator Pauline Sechi will demonstrate their skills in their particular art forms. Sechi was California Garden Clubs’ Creative Flower Arranger of the Year in 2008–2009.
Musician Barbara Chabazian, hostess of one of the seven homes on this year’s tour, will participate in a string trio at her home with a series of performances throughout the day. Violinist Chabazian will be joined in the trio by cellist Millie Boaz and violist Lois Leyva. Noted guitarist David McMaster will entertain at another of the gardens.
