“Art of the Garden” is a juried exhibition of original art showcasing fine handcrafted work inspired by the natural beauty of gardens.
Fifty artists created 90 pieces from fiber art and delicate jewelry to ceramic garden sculptures.
The exhibition will be judged by Jennifer O. Rominiecki, President and CEO of Marie Selby Botanical Gardens since 2015. She possesses twenty years of experience at major New York City cultural institutions and served The New York Botanical Garden for 15 years. Earlier in her career, Rominiecki held key positions at The Metropolitan Opera and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum.
