Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden is more than flowers – much more. If you are planning to visit this spring, be sure to stop into the Ginter Gallery II in the Education and Library Complex for the Joint Invitational Exhibit: Recent Work by Instructors and Students. This year’s exhibit features the work of students, graduates, and instructors in the botanical illustration certificate program and ‘Art in the Garden’ series. The selection and treatment of the subject matter is as varied as nature itself. Media include traditional botanical illustration and other media, including fiber, mixed media, and more.
The 2014 show runs through April 20, Easter Sunday. Whether the weather is warm and sunny or still has a bit of winter, there’s always something interesting to see in the garden.
