Discover new art in the Garden, and the garden in art

Naturally inspired art of every kind is on display in the Guren Art Gallery

As intimate as it is inspiring, the Garden’s 2nd floor Guren Art Gallery features regularly changing works by local and national artists in many media. The only common link from exhibit to exhibit is artistic inspiration taken from the botanical and natural worlds. Painting, photography, and occasionally sculpture and nontraditional media forms and even student work, have all been on display here over the years.

Grisselle Chock's Guren Gallery Show "Blissfully Vivid"

 

"Blissfully Vivid" by Grisselle Chock

Guren Gallery
October 7 - November 18
Free with Botanical Garden admission

The "Blissfully Vivid" show is a celebration of our botanical diversity and complexity through the use of bright color, textures and form. It brings up the question of, "What would life be without diversity?" It encourages us to remember the importance of the protection of our natural world. It explores the fragile cycles that connect plant life around the world to animal species.
