Tour of Gardens 2021
Gallery on First is excited to team up with the Sanford Historic Trust for their 11th annual Tour of Gardens from 9am – 3pm on Saturday May 8. This walking (or driving) tour through Historic Downtown Sanford will be a feast for the eyes with seven artists from Gallery on First painting en plein aire and nine works of art up for grabs during a day-long silent auction to benefit the trust.
This event will feature over 30 vendors, a plant sale and local garden experts lecturing throughout the day.
