A new and exciting annual event is planned for July 30 and 31, 2011 at Garst Museum in Greenville, Ohio. The Gathering at Garst: A Garden of Antiques and Art, will be a quality, juried show that features vendors in the following categories; artists, antique vendors, skilled historical craftsmen, primitive folk- artists, garden exhibitors, farmers market and specialty vendors, and food vendors.
The Gathering at Garst will be held outside in the beautiful park-like setting behind the Garst Museum. The area is surrounded by the Greenville City Park and Darke County Park areas. Vendors will be grouped in a casual flowing pattern. For example, all artists will be in one area, all antique vendors will be in another area. This will create a close, casual, flowing, walk-through-the garden vendor area.
It is the mission of The Gathering at Garst to promote awareness and appreciation of those who made unique contributions to the culture of Darke County and to celebrate its local heritage in a family-oriented and educational atmosphere.
The Gathering committee is directed by Garst Museum executive director, Dr. Clay Johnson, and event chairperson, Jenny Clark. Public admission to The Gathering at Garst is free. All celebration proceeds will benefit the Garst Museum.
Event hours will be from 10:00 am to 8:00 pm on Saturday, July 30 and from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm on Sunday, July 31. Vendor set up will be on Friday, July 29 from 12:00 to 8:00 pm
