Art in the Garden Tour: July 18th

| No Comments

Art and theater among the beauty of area gardens - is there a better way to spend an afternoon? 


From the website:


'Six residential gardens in Edison and Metuchen will be open to the public on Saturday, July 18th for the Fourth Annual "Art in the Garden Tour". From its beginning, the tour has been a popular local event that has grown to attract visitors from around the state. Tickets are $20 and cover admission to all six gardens plus refreshments. Children under 10 are Free!


Our theme "Tots On Tour" includes activities, song and poetry designed for young children. At the starting location, each child that finds a magic blue pebble and tosses it into the "Make a Wish Fountain " will receive a nature inspired craft to take home! Mom, Dad, Grandparents - bring the little ones with you!'


And from Metuchen artist and Junebug Chairperson Linda Vonderschmidt LaStella:

Junebug Sculpture Unveiled


Junebug Sculpture 09 001.JPGThe Junebug Sculpture, the signature piece of this year's festival created by artist Roy Chambers, was unveiled on June 5th.  Made entirely of recycled materials such as a discarded tuba, the legs of a discarded swing set, copper piping from Roy's sink, and old plastic bottles (to name just a few), it's a beautiful piece that will stand near Metuchen Savings Bank for the duration of the festival. (and my photo does NOT do the piece any justice!)

See more of Roy's work, and the work of many other resident artists, at the Artist's Studio Tour on the 12th! 


SEUSSICAL opening at Edgar School




Tomorrow evening the curtain rises on Seussical The Musical!  Rhondi and Jim Sabo are at the helm for their ninth show at Edgar - Rhondi handling theatrical direction and Jim the musical direction.  In the midst of opening week mania, Rhondi spoke with us about the show and her dedication to drama at our middle school.


How long have you and Jim been involved with the Edgar theater program?

This is our ninth show at Edgar.  We started when our son Steven was there with Pirates of Penzance.  I always like to choose a show that has a large chorus and several leading and supporting roles.  This way many students can be featured.  Although they must audition, I take everyone who wants to do the show.  That can be very tricky on this tiny stage.
