Art of the Garden: The Garden in Art

An exhibition celebrating the love of plants, opening June 5 at Grey Gallery in Owen Sound.

If you are in or around the Owen Sound area this June and early July, drop in at the gallery and view the botanical and floral art. Works by members of the Botanical Artists of Canada (BAC) will be on display from June 5 to July 6, 2019, 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Wednesday to Saturday. I have 3 pieces in the exhibition.

Note: A portion of sales revenue goes toward support of “Among the Peonies” at Ginkgo Footprints gardens.

Botanical Artists of Canada 2017 Juried Exhibition – Closes July 26, 2017

Just a reminder that there is less than 1 week left to view the BAC 2017 juried exhibition at the Robert Langen Art Gallery in the Library, Wilfrid Laurier University, Waterloo, Ontario. As one visitor noted … it is certainly worth the trip to Waterloo. I will be sitting the exhibiton on Sunday, July 23rd from 11 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. Plan your visit then. The exhibition closes on Wednesday, July 26th at 12:00 noon.

I’m excited that my piece – “Spring’s Harbinger” – Pussy Willow ~ Salix discolor was awarded 3rd place!
