Morven Museum & Garden in Princeton, New Jersey presents Morven in May: A Celebration of Art, Craft and Garden (Morven in May) on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, May 3rd, 4th and 5th 2013.
One of New Jersey’s most anticipated spring rituals, Morven in May welcomes a select group of twenty professional artists and artisans from throughout the northeast region of the U.S. Art mediums include glass, ceramics, decorative and wearable fiber, mixed media, jewelry, furniture and fine art. Along with an array of beautifully crafted art objects displayed in gallery-style booths, under a grand tent on the museum’s Great Lawn, Morven will offer for sale a distinct collection of heirloom perennials and unique annuals.
The weekend-long event kicks off on Friday, May 3rd with an early-evening preview garden party from 6:30 – 9:00. The show then opens to the public for two days of art and garden treasure hunting. All proceeds from Morven in May help fund the museum’s collections and exhibitions, historic gardens, and educational programs.
Artist and book publisher, Wendy Hollander, will be the special guest speaker at this year’s Morven in May. On Saturday afternoon at 2:00, Ms. Hollander will present a program about delicious and nutrient-packed foods that grow rampant in fields, forests, and backyards. Her three-year foraging adventure has taken Wendy from field to forest, to the drawing studio, and into the kitchen. Wendy Hollander is the illustrator and co-author of Foraging and Feasting, a combination field guide and cookbook scheduled to be published in June, 2013. The program is free with art show admission.
