Gallery walls are the conventional way to display art, but this summer the UBC Botanical Garden will be the backdrop for an exciting exhibition. Art In The Garden takes place this August in the heart of the UBC Botanical Garden with an exhibition of works by 20 B.C. artists. Art In The Garden will include art from the garden, art for the garden, art inspired by the garden, and of course all displayed in the garden. You’ll see all types of artworks from garden fountains to bird feeders, jewellery to ceramics, works in glass to works in metal, large and small sculptures, and a variety of photography and painting styles.
Come meet the artists and soak in their work. Garden and nature lovers are encouraged to enjoy the synergy between the botanical garden and the art. Relax with refreshments on the Garden Pavilion deck overlooking the food garden and nearby art, or take a stroll through the Asian Garden and contemplate nature’s own creativity.
Organized by the Friends of UBC Botanical Garden in collaboration with Janet Planet Designs, Art In The Garden runs August 8 and 9 from 10 am to 5 pm at the UBC Botanical Garden located at 6804 SW Marine Drive at the intersection of Marine Drive and 16th Avenue on the University of British Columbia campus.
Special gate fee in effect that allows re-entry throughout the weekend and includes a raffle of prizes by artists (regular garden admission fees).
