Bartram Exhibition & Symposium

August 30 - October 30, 2014

The American Society of Botanical Artists (ASBA), in collaboration with Bartram's Garden in Philadelphia, has curated an exhibition of original contemporary botanical artworks depicting plants discovered and introduced by the Bartrams. Focusing on the native plant discoveries made by John and William Bartram in their travels throughout the eastern wilderness between the 1730s and 1790s, the exhibition of forty-four original artworks allows a fresh look at their seminal body of knowledge and art. The touring exhibition opens at the North Carolina Botanical Garden on August 30, 2014. See the Bartram Exhibition & Symposium page for full details.

Sculpture in the Garden

September 21 - December 7, 2014, Preview Party September 20

Every fall the Garden hosts one of the Triangle’s most anticipated art events, a juried outdoor exhibition of exciting sculptures by North Carolina artists. The 26th Annual Sculpture in the Garden will again showcase dozens of original works of North Carolina sculptors in the Garden exquisitely illuminating the bond between art and nature. Stunning pieces composed of concrete, wood, marble, ceramic, and more will be judged for Best in Show and People’s Choice Awards. See the Sculpture in the Garden website for full details.

We are also so pleased to introduce our first Annual Artist-in-Residency Program featuring Patrick Dougherty October 6-24. Patrick will design an on-site outdoor installation over a three week period—a rare chance to see the creative process in the making.
