Art by Nature: Front Yard Friends Now Open

No bug spray or hiking poles are necessary to experience this stroll through nature! This year’s show, Art by Nature: Front Yard Friends, highlights the beauty and benefits of front yard landscaping. The gallery features 46 pieces of work from 26 local artists. Digital art, drawing, mixed media, painting and videography are all among the mediums included in the exhibit. Youth who attend the William Wells Brown Community Center created works highlighting a garden next to the center. Pieces are available for purchase; a portion of the proceeds will go to CELEBRATELex, formerly known as America in Bloom Lexington.

This year’s topic was selected to bring attention to new Plant by Numbers plans for front yards. These plans make it easy for novices to design beautiful, low-maintenance, environmentally-friendly landscapes. The plans were created by EARTHeim Landscape Design, and are available for free from the City,
