NOTES from the exhibition program:
Listen to its secrets and see what you can discover. Â Gaze upon the intricate lines of a leaf, gently feel the soft surface of a petal and stoop down to inhale the aroma of a flowerâ€™s blossom. Here in the garden, you will find more than natureâ€™s infinite beauty. You will find a seed of creativity that has grown by the nurturing hands of artists into a metaphor for life and all that it has to offer.
In this show, forty artists came together to present to the viewer what the garden has to offer. Utilizing various mediums and their individual techniques, these artists capture the essence of the garden as a symbol of seduction and metamorphosis.Â Â Garden and art evolved from the intersection of where the garden and art meet to become one in the â€œGarden as Art.â€
