Nationally known artists participating in Berthoud Art in the Garden Event on June 26
A sculptor who has a piece in the Michael Jackson collection; an artist whose works range from the bold and playful to the mysterious and spiritual; a longtime Berthoud potter and member of the Boulder Potter’s Guild whose wall and pole birdhouses and candle lamps are shaped in part by his admiration for the work of ancient Egyptian and middle eastern cultures; a Berthoud metal artist whose innovative designs can be seen all over Northern Colorado.
Berthoud Art in the Garden, an art sale and event combined with many other cultural activities, will feature some of the premier artists in Northern Colorado. Just to mention a few:
