Find fifty-eight fabulous handmade fairy and gnome homes scattered along the shady walking path at Annmarie Sculpture Garden & Arts Center (Annmarie Garden) in Solomons, Maryland this summer.

With an exhibit that includes houses titled, Tooth Fairy, Meadow Flower Manor, Palm Tree Beach Resort, Tea House to name but a few, a visit is necessary! Guests start their magical tour by stopping in the Arts Building to pick up the ‘Can You Find…? guide, created by noted graphic artist, Melinda Fabian. Fabian has created a delightful guide that features hidden pictures, a puzzle, and a location map for all the houses.
