Plant enthusiasts and gardeners alike are invited to attend the Pence Gallery’s 29th Annual Garden Tour. After a two-year break, they are so glad to bring back this event which provides a great opportunity to visit with friends and family during the height of spring weather. Enjoy a self-guided tour through five gorgeous private gardens in Davis on the Pence’s annual Garden Tour. This year’s Tour features several homes with large gardens located on the outskirts of town, as well as several gardens spread throughout Davis. Additionally, learn about plant selection and landscaping from Yolo County Master Gardeners.
Tour highlights include gardens featuring a greenhouse and several ponds, a mid-century design home, copious fruit trees, and a charming gazebo. Onsite, watch plein air painters Leslie DuPratt, Rhonda Egan, Karen Fess-Uecker, Kaye Gamper, Chris Kidd, Mary Kobashigawa, and Marlene Lee create beautiful landscapes right before your eyes.
Attendees can stop by the Pence for a tour by Director Natalie Nelson of Gayle BonDurant’s nature-inspired work in her exhibit Seasonal Gestures. They will have two other exhibits open for visitors to see and learn about, On the Edge: CCA Clay and Marsha Schindler’s solo exhibit Life Whispers, Listen Carefully. Visitors at the gallery may also pick up a gift bag with special discounts and treats (limited to the first 100 people).
