Tucked into a corner of the garden amid the tulips, the brightly-colored gnomes were guarding the pink and white azaleas and blue “glory of the snow” in the neighborhood garden.
On Saturday, May 11, the Cabbagetown Clay and Glass Works (CCGW) and Garden*Hood, made it easy to own your own Gnomes in the Hood. Guests enjoyed the sights and scents of spring plants, sipped cocktails, and viewed garden gnomes of all varieties. The event featured one-of-a-kind gnomes (or “gnomesses”) created by 25 local artists (painters, sculptors) who joined forces with CCGW’s artists. The unique gnomes were auctioned off by silent auction in the luscious flowering space of Garden*Hood, a neighboring plant and garden center. Gnomes in the Hood will benefit CCGW, a non-profit, cooperative, artist-run studio, and will support their community outreach.  CCGW members presented free workshops to local transitional housing programs for women and for veterans.
Garden*Hood and Cabbagetown Clay and Glass Works’ are located across the street from each other on the corner of Boulevard and Woodward Avenues, between I-20 and Memorial Drive. CCGW is at 588 Woodward Avenue, 30312 and Garden*Hood is at 353 Boulevard SE, 30312.
