About The Event

The exhibit at TDAC will showcase regional Cascadia artists who are creating work in response to the prompt: How does nature show up in our everyday lives through a garden? Historically, gardens have been designed to tame the wild with the use of landscaping tools and chemicals. In more recent years, aligned with the effort to create pollinator/bird/animal-friendly green spaces has helped to increase the use of native plants and to reduce the use of chemicals. In this exhibit, artists are reckoning with the concepts of traditional and non-traditional standards of beauty as they explore the wild in our everyday lives. Pieces must depict a garden/green space or be made to be placed in a garden. All mediums will be represented: paintings, drawings, prints, sculptures, ceramic art and textile/fabric arts.

The opening night reception is a celebration of creativity and a way for the public to meet the artists. To celebrate the theme of our open show, please dress in your best Garden Party attire. There will be prizes for the best hats! Enjoy some garden party fare, drink a craft garden cocktail by Gander & Goose (included with ticket), learn a bit about our local gardening communities and enjoy the diverse local art.
