A wide variety of arts and crafts, including beautiful hand-crafted jewelry, are displayed and available for sale at Art in the Garden at Lendonwood Gardens. This year, the event is scheduled for Saturday, May 7, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the botanical garden. Art in the Garden coincides with peak bloom time for azaleas and rhododendrons at the garden.
Area artists and artisans are invited to reserve booths for showing and selling their works at the 2022 Art in the Garden show set for Saturday, May 7, in Lendonwood Gardens in Grove. Deadline for booth reservations is Friday, April 29.
There is no fee for art exhibitors to participate in the show, which will be open from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the botanical garden. A deposit of $25 reserves booth space and is reimbursable to artists who participate. Booths will be set up throughout the Gardens and are available by reservation on a first-come, first-served basis. Artists retain all proceeds from sales of their artworks.
Art in the Garden will feature works by young school-age artists as well as professional artists and accomplished craftsmen. Participants typically include potters, wood-turners, jewelry-makers, sculptors and carvers, in addition to artists working with oils, watercolors and other media.
During Art in the Garden, there will be no admission fee for the public to explore the eight-acre botanical garden and enjoy the displays of arts and crafts. Rain date for the event is Saturday, May 14.
“The Gardens will be in full bloom when the participants display their artworks,” said Stan Starts, Lendonwood board member who is coordinating the event. “We always look forward to this annual show of beautiful art in a beautiful place.”
