Art in the Garden, held just outside Perth, had a lovely selection of art this year. I was fortunate to visit on the Saturday and the weather was glorious, sunny with cooling breezes. Just what you need for strolling through the extensive grounds of Kiwi Gardens. Lots of interesting garden art on display, but without a doubt, the whimsical creations by Ottawa artist, Liz Cielsluk were the ones that captured my imagination and drew my interest the most.
Like this little fellow, who seems to be cobbled together with all manner of things, a sort of steampunk hummingbird-frog. Definitely a creature of fancy.
As would be expected in this topsy-turvy world, Alice was in attendance, along with her flamingos.
As was this woodland wizard who blended very nicely into his surroundings.
It seems that several characters had come to the sale using their own modes of transportation.
This handsome fellow was the most beautiful shade of blue. Very regal indeed.
And this cross between a bird and butterfly definitely has magpie tendencies, as his collection of glittery objects shows.
But there were many other artists at the sale, with wonderful works of art that would blend very nicely into garden landscapes, including these interesting trellises which would divide a garden into different areas very nicely.
I look forward to visiting again next year!
