Artworks, Trenton’s downtown visual arts center, will become a lush garden of art with an exhibition of work by artists whose work features a garden theme or is made for placement in the garden. It’s all part of the Spring Garden Art Show held in conjunction with the Mill Hill Garden Tour June 13, noon to 5 p.m.
Participating artists include Eric Botbyl, Gail Bracegirdle, Jim Doherty, Annelies van Dommelen, Vanessa Fenton, Colleen Frendak Furnari, Kathryn Jennings, Kate Graves, Wm. Coleman Mills, Glenn Moore, Lauren Otis, Jo Robinson, David Robinson, Robin Robinson, Ashley Shochat, Suzanne Stevenson, and Andrew Wilkinson.
Work in the show comments on and draws inspiration from the lush vegetation, saturated color and ever-varying forms of nature and gardens. Visual art, sculpture, furniture, decorative and functional pieces will be included, as well as handmade crafts and gifts. Affordable prices abound.
Like a particularly vibrant bloom, the Artworks’ Garden of Artistic Delights won’t last long. The show runs from June 12 through July 24.
Artworks, 19 Everett Alley, Mill Hill, Trenton, is the registration site for the Mill Hill Garden Tour, which takes place from noon to 5 p.m. June 13. Garden tour registrants, and the general public, are encouraged to get a cup of lemonade or iced tea and browse through the show from noon to 5 p.m., and all are welcome for a special opening reception from 5 to 7 p.m.
The Salon Show, held in tandem with Ellarslie, the Trenton City Museum, will also be on display in the ARTWORKS Gallery.
