Looking for unique, one-of-a-kind art pieces to adorn your home or garden? Then you’ll enjoy ArtFest, featuring more than twenty local and regional artists displaying and selling their work at amazing prices on April 7 & 8. Fine art, Asian art and a quick draw contest are among the event highlights. Fantastic sculptors, painters, glass artists, gourd and fiber artists, and potters will also give demonstrations of their craft throughout the weekend. Watch as quick draw contestants create an entire work of art in just hours right in front of your eyes on Saturday morning. After judging, these incredible works of art will be available for you to purchase. Come celebrate the art of Asian horticulture at ArtFest with outstanding displays and demonstrations by the Keiri Study Group of Sogetsu School of Ikebana and Bonsai & Beyond. Enjoy fresh salads, sandwiches, coffee, and treats from The Feel Good Coffee Cart, located right next to the Garden’s Gift Shops, where you can find garden-related gifts (and plants!) for the plant lover in your life. Live music will be on tap all weekend featuring Bob Ballentine and friends.

Plan on spending part—or all—of your weekend at ArtFest!
