The Camden Garden Club presents its 75th Annual Garden Tour on July 20, 2023. The Club is pleased to announce that this year’s featured en plein air painter is Maine artist Alexandra Perry-Weiss. Throughout the day, Tour guests can watch Perry-Weiss painting in one of the featured gardens in Camden.
At the conclusion of the day, Perry-Weiss’s completed oil painting will be the grand prize offered in a raffle. The raffle will also include a variety of prizes from local Camden businesses. Raffle tickets will be available for purchase during the day at featured properties and Tour headquarters at the Public Landing in Camden.
All raffle proceeds benefit the Camden Garden Club’s scholarship fund. The Club awards scholarships to local students pursuing four-year degrees in horticulture, botany, landscape architecture, forestry, environmental studies, and related fields. The Club also provides financial aid for children to attend summer camp where campers may focus on nature studies and activities.
