Art collectors and those wishing to enhance their home will have an opportunity to see and purchase artwork when ArtScape comes to the Dallas Arboretum. On March 18 through March 20, the Dallas Arboretum, 8525 Garland Road, will come alive with beautiful art from nearly 100 artists from around the country. This juried show is free with admission and takes place during Dallas Blooms, the garden’s spring floral festival which is sponsored by Capital One Bank.
All of the art in the show is of or about nature and is captured in many different mediums including painting, photography, mixed media, sculpture, jewelry, ceramics and more. It will be displayed in booths amid over 500,000 spring bulbs and thousands of annuals and perennials blooming throughout the garden.
“Now in its sixth year, ArtScape has become one of the premier fine arts fairs in the Southwest. With nearly 100 artists from across the country and the incomparable venue of the Arboretum during Dallas Blooms, we think that art lovers will find this year’s Artscape to be the best yet,” said Larry Waisanen, Chair of the ArtScape Committee.
Artists of note on display include Lyn Foley from Round Top, Texas who is an award winning glass artist and jeweler; Marianne Gargour from Dallas whose paintings can be seen in shows and galleries around the country and Gary Poon from Claremont, California whose sumi painting on silk has been an exciting attraction in shows throughout the world.
