Nice landscaping and gardening can be found all throughout Zanesville, and this weekend you have the chance to see some of the finest displays up close.

The Zanesville Museum of Art’s third annual "Art in the Garden – Garden Tour" takes place this Sunday and features seven different gardens in the area. It’s part of a busy weekend for the museum that begins with the Garden Party Gala on Saturday.

"We have a wonderful, elegant southern buffet planned catered by Classic Fare Catering, and that will be followed by a live auction of 32 pieces, I believe," said Cindy Morehead who worked on programs, sponsors, and garden selections.  "There are probably 17 pieces of artwork by local and nationally known artists."

The gala runs from 6:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday. The garden tour serves as the second leg of the fundraiser and runs from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday. Tickets can be purchased for both events for $50 while those wishing to participate in just the garden tour can purchase tickets for $15 in advance or $20 the day of the tour.

"Just $15 for touring seven beautiful gardens, refreshments, musicians, entertainment–again, like I say, it will be the highlight of summer," Morehead said.
