Gardens are filled with numerous textures and colors. From the flowers to the vegetables, all the way to the critters that have made a home on a leaf or in the soil. There is so much inspiration to find, explore, and create. This new exhibit gives artists an opportunity to bring a garden or elements of a garden to life through their art. The Arts Council of Anne Arundel County invites all Anne Arundel County residents (ages 18 and older) to enter its ‘Into the Garden’ Exhibition. Any two-dimensional work following the guidelines in the prospectus below will be considered by the jurors.
