Open Garden Day event in Belfast August 10
August 10 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm$5
Enjoy artwork indoors and gardens outdoors at the home and studio of artist Linda Hause, part of Belfast Garden Club’s Open Garden Days.
Hydrangea blooms and whimsical sculptures – like one of the legendary Bearfest bears—will greet visitors to the Open Garden Day August 10 at the home and studio of Belfast artist Linda Hause. Her Congress Street residence has a towering wisteria plant, started from a 6-incslip twelve years ago, dozens of hostas and a growing number of perennials—Hause says—as she works to attract pollinators and rid her yard of lawn.
Visitors will be invited indoors to enjoy the stained glass works, paintings and sculptures thatHause has made over three decades of creating art. She helped establish the Bearfest comunity art event that ran from 2000-2003 and decorated five of the bears in it. One bear found its way into her living room. Another took on a new life and now stands, sporting flip-flops and an artist’s easel, beside her front door.
The Hause garden, at 66 Congress Street (between Miller and Pearl streets), can be seen Friday August 10 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., rain or shine. A $5 donation per visitor helps the Belfast Garden Club (belfastgardenclub.org) fund scholarships.
