Lendonwood Art in the Garden
May 1 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
Lendonwood Gardens in Grove will host their 2021 Art in the Garden show on Saturday, May 1st.
Area artists are invited to reserve booths for showing and selling their works at the annual show.
The art show will be Lendonwood’s first public event since the COVID-19 pandemic began, although the garden has remained open to daily visitors. During this year’s Art in the Garden, artists and visitors will be asked to maintain social distancing and wear masks. Complimentary masks will be available at the gate.
There is no charge for art exhibitors to participate in the show, according to Stan Starts, a Lendonwood board member who is coordinating the event. A deposit of $25 reserves booth space and is reimbursable to artists who participate. The deadline for requesting booth space is Saturday, April 24.
Booths will be set up throughout the Gardens and are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Artists retain all proceeds from sales 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 are asked to 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 garden is open year-round during daylight hours.
