Art in the Garden Summer Series
Local artists will converge and create, drawing inspiration from the sensuous plants and flowers growing in our garden. Drop by to see the artists at work, bring your own creative materials, and dip into the cosmic curiosity that blooms all around.
Thank you to Kathleen Pemberton for being our featured artist in the garden on Wednesday, July 31. Using acrylic paints, Kathleen captured the wonder of our many guests on this well attended afternoon, delighting us with the beauty of her compositions.
Next: Special Edition of Art in the Garden: Tuesday, August 13, 7 to 9 p.m.
Join the Amor Fati Ensemble from Vancouver Island, as they access inspiration from the stories and spaces at the museum and transform them into an improvised movement vignette. This experimental encounter is a unique and powerful exercise in place-based sense-making. It will be performed live in the Heritage Garden at the Cortes Museum.
