Once again, Nature Artists’ Guild member Connie Devendorf has been kind enough to arrange for us the popular mid-summer paint-out at the beautiful gardens of Danada House, located on Naperville Wheaton Road, just north of I-88 and south of Butterfield Road. Danada House was built in the 1920’s by Dan and Ada Rice as their country retreat, and the recently renovated grounds include a rose garden labyrinth, native plants garden, a lovely alley garden, courtyard garden, and even a Thoroughbred horse farm!
Click here for the Danada House website, or here for a few photos from last year’s paint-out. We’ll have the grounds from 9:30 am until about 2:00 on Monday, July 18, 2011, so come any time, and there’s no need to RSVP. Facilities and a huge screened-in terrace (no bugs!) overlooking the gardens will be available.
