The Garden Club of Virginia’s Historic Garden Week gets underway in 10 days, a bit later than usual thanks to Easter’s late date this year. The schedule, though, suits the weather as the blossoms all seem to be running at least a week behind. If the delays leave you longing for a garden fix, the Hanging in the Garden art show at Brazier Gallery may be just what you need.
The exhibit includes garden-related paintings inspired by the homes and gardens on this year’s Richmond tours and historic garden sites restored by the Garden Club of Virginia. The works have been created by Hang Five, a group of the following five local artists who are donating a portion of the proceeds from this show to the Garden Club of Virginia’s restoration projects:
So much lovelier in person than what my unworthy photos convey, you’ve just got to visit to fully appreciate the work of this talented group. The show runs through April 30th, but the paintings are flying off the walls so do try to stop in sooner rather than later. The show will put you in a Spring-y frame of mind.
