On Saturday, 28 April 2012, the Greater Malakoff Area Garden Club in collaboration withy County Line Magazine sponsored a Sculpture Garden & Art Tour in the Tri-County area of Texas which included the counties of Kaufman, Van Zandt, and Henderson.
Fred and Sandy Roché, Doc and BJ Williams, and Bob and Pat Stokes joined to spend the day touring the Gardens and viewing the art provided by the people of the Tri-County area and the Greater Malakoff Area Garden Club.
Encouraged by James and Barbara Stewart, the developers of Beacon Hill in Kemp, Texas, the Sculpture Gardens of James Surls, the Bartlett House, and their own Jim and Barbara Steward Sculpture Gardens were open for the event. The Roseland Plantation in Edom, Texas, opened the 1859 Hambrick House restored by Tim and Carolyn West and the antique shop where the large replica of the Last Supper is displayed.
Unfortunately, there was so much open to the public, that it was impossible to see everything. There is an excellent book of the event published by the Garden Club of Malakoff in collaboration with County Line Magazine.
This video is an effort to present a full day’s activity in 4 minutes. If this becomes an annual event, it will be worth the time, effort and expense to attend.
