ArtFest at the Garden
April 7 & 8, 2018 | San Diego Botanic Garden
ArtFest at the Garden features some of the finest regional artists displaying their talents with the beautiful San Diego Botanic Garden as a backdrop. The fine arts show features more than 20 artists displaying and selling their work at amazing prices. Many of these fantastic sculptors, painters, glass artists, potters, gourd and fiber artists who participate in ArtFest will also provide interesting demonstrations of their craft.
Celebrate the art of Asian horticulture with outstanding displays and demonstrations by the Keiri Study Group of Sogetsu School of Ikebana and Bonsai and Beyond. In the Walled Garden, Bonsai & Beyond members will be displaying a rich composition of miniature treasures from the plant world, including bonsai, saikei, penjing, hon non bo, kusamono, terrariums, fairy gardens, and hanging gardens.
As an added bonus, several sculptors who are currently showing their work throughout the garden as a part of the 2017-2018 “Sculpture in the Garden” exhibit will be offering discounts for buyers interested in purchasing their work during ArtFest.
Fresh salads, sandwiches, coffee and treats will be available from The Feel Good Coffee Cart, located right next to the Gift Shops, where you can find unique, garden-related gifts for the plant lover in your life.
