Last year, the annual Art in the Garden, a collaboration between artist/curator Eric Matelski and Denver Urban Gardens, was rained out. But last Saturday, it was a different story: The weather was gorgeous and sunny, the snacks ample, the live music by Erik Rudolph spirited and I'll be damned if a garden -- in this case, the West Washington Park Community Garden at Second Avenue and Grant Street -- didn't turn out to be just about the nicest gallery space I've ever seen. See some of the sights at Art in the Garden after the jump.

Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
