For a few weeks, Annmarie’s spectacular Main Gallery will be transformed into artist studios, where visitors will have the opportunity to observe and interact with artists as they work. This exciting time at Annmarie Garden provides a unique retreat and experimental space for artists to develop new works, display and sell their work, to network with other artists, and to share their creative process.

Visitors will be able to watch, learn, ask questions, and in some cases, become engaged in an art project. The participating artists are encouraged to create a hands-on experience for guests, which may include an invitation to experiment with materials and/or process, or collaboration on an idea or design. Artists in Action is a wonderful opportunity to get an up close look at the working and creative process of an artist.
