Eclectic Design Choices at Art in the Garden

Art in the Garden is a fundraiser for the Fort Worth Botanic Gardens. It is held around the FWADA's Fall Gallery Night each year. According to the Botanic Gardens' website you will find "over 60 different artists displaying oils, watercolors, sculpture, photography and jewelry." This year Art in the Garden will be Friday, September 11 from noon to 7 pm, Saturday, September 12 from 9 am to 8 pm and Sunday, September 13 from noon to 4 pm, with a wine and cheese reception during Fall Gallery Night, on Saturday, September 12. Artwork will be displayed in the halls of the Garden Center.

I'm pleased to report that I will be one of the 60 or so artists whose work will be on display this year. Two of my gallery wrapped photographic art prints were accepted. All displayed works are for sale and a portion of each sale will help fund the Botanic Gardens. If you have a chance to check out Art in the Garden you will have the opportunity to see some wonderful works of art and if one of them speaks to you enough to purchase it, you will be helping out a good cause.

If you visit Art in the Garden on Fall Gallery Night you will be close to several other venues with great artwork to view. Adjacent to the shared parking lot with the Botanic Gardens is BRIT (Botanical Research Institute of Texas) with the Best of Texas Clay Exhibit plus a pop-up gallery by the Fort Worth Art Collective for Gallery Night. Other participating venues can be found in the FWADA's Fall Gallery Night catalog.

Update 9/14/15:

I'm happy to report that I was pleasantly surprised when I got to the Art in the Garden reception. My Bald Mountain Series "Rock Ridge - Color received a second place ribbon in the photography category.
