Art in the Garden event Saturday in Goodman

Art in the Garden is planned Saturday at the home of Lynn and James Stankevich in Goodman, Wis.

GOODMAN, Wis. — The annual Art in the Garden is slated from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday at the home of Lynn and James Stankevich, 105 Main St. in Goodman.

As shoppers browse the garden paths, vendors are tucked away among the hostas, lilies, ferns and ponds. Jewelry work, quilt work and other forms of crafts and art — such as paintings, pottery, cloth works, cards and garden art — are set up beneath towering maples or in the sunken gazebo area garden.

Vendors and visitors alike can sit and soak up the atmosphere and relax as they shop, sell or listen to live music by the band Cuttin Grass from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Lynn Stankevich reminds vendors to call to reserve space at $10 per booth. She can be reached at 715-336-2077 or 715-548-1366. Vendors should communicate their special needs, if any.

She and her husband, Jim, remind shoppers food and refreshments also will be for sale throughout the five hours.

The Stankevichs and the Varsity Club of Goodman-Armstrong Creek schools use proceeds from this event for local scholarships. In the Stankevichs’ case, the scholarship honors the memory of their son, Brian, a cancer victim at a very young age.

The Varsity Club also uses any food and beverage profits for student scholarships. They sell hot dogs, bratwurst, hamburgers and the beverages. Among the extras will be homemade sauerkraut carefully prepared by Brian’s grandparents. In addition, pure maple syrup from Brian’s uncle and artwork from his brother will be for sale.

More than 30 vendors will be on site. A large assortment of bucket drawings will take place as well — guests can purchase tickets for a chance to win.

In case of rain, the event will be moved to the Goodman Fire/Rescue Hall.

The Stankevich family looks forward to welcoming visitors to their yard to take in the shopping, live music and gardens.
