neighborhood art show in Menlo Park

What started as an idea over a glass of wine between Menlo Park homeowner and garden designer Andrea Reed and mosaic artist Kathleen McCabe-Martin turned into this weekend’s Artists in the Garden, an event taking place until 5:30 today and again tomorrow from 12:30 to 5:30 pm at 1352 Orange Ave. Much of what is on display are things that enhance a garden — art benches, fountains, clay murals and sculpture, birdbaths, stepping stones, and wall hangings — but there is also some jewelry and plein air oils. In addition to Andrea and Kathleen, participating artists include painter Simone Archer and clay sculptor Susie Howell.
