Art In The Garden

​Lendonwood Gardens is issuing a call for area artists and artisans to sign up for the 2023 Art in the Garden show set for Saturday, May 6, at the botanical garden in Grove. Area artists are invited to reserve booths for showing and selling their works at the annual show.

There is no charge for art exhibitors to participate in the show, according to Stan Starts, Lendonwood board member who is coordinating the event. A deposit of $25 reserves booth space and is reimbursable to artists who participate. Deadline for requesting booth space is Friday, April 28.

Booths will be set up throughout the Gardens and are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Artists retain all proceeds from the sale 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, quilters, jewelry-makers, sculptors and carvers, in addition to artists working with oils, watercolors and other media.

During the Art in the Garden event, entrance is free for the public to explore the eight-acre botanical garden and enjoy the displays of arts and crafts.

“On this special day, visitors will get to see the garden in full bloom, while checking out the works of a diverse and talented group of artists and artisans,” Starts said. “Beautiful art combined with a beautiful garden makes for a delightful day.”

Exhibitors interested in participating in Art in the Garden may contact Starts at 918-786-5300 or Lendonwood at 918-786-2938 for more information and to request a display space packet.

Lendonwood displays large collections of colorful azaleas, rhododendrons, dogwoods, daylilies, Japanese maples, hostas and more. The eight-acre garden is open year-round during daylight hours.
