  • Local artists are promoting their garden art as a way to add color to outdoor spaces — especially for this summer when drought may cause landscaping to suffer in Ashland.
    The artists are holding their annual Art for the Home & Garden show from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday and Saturday and from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday. The art will be displayed on both the inside and outside of two houses, one at 447 Pape St. and the other at 421 Prim St. in Ashland.
    Both streets are off Wimer Street. A shuttle service is provided between the two homes.
    The show will feature metal work, pottery, jewelry, glass, fine art, textiles, garden art and more.
    Artists Stefani and Dan Seffinger have made colorful glass flowers, butterflies and dragonflies for the show — accompanied by a fun sign that the art is drought tolerant, won't lose its color, will thrive in any climate and will maintain its beauty throughout winter.
    "Because of the drought, people want something colorful for their garden," said Stefani Seffinger, who is also an Ashland Parks and Recreation Commissioner.
