Art in the Garden at the Dallas Arboretum

Friday, March 16, 2012

The Dallas Arboretum’s annual art show, Artscape, featured nearly 100 artists from around the country.

The banner advertising Artscape was displayed on the lake side of the fence.

One of the best artists exhibiting was Lee Reams. Lee is a wonderful artist and is featured in a book soon to be released that showcases the talent of 100 contemporary artists from around the world. And Lee certainly deserves the acclaim! Her art is unique in that she only uses a palette knife when she paints.

Another artist that captured the imagination was Fredrick Prescott, whose colorful, huge metal kinetic sculptures moved in the wind. Prescott’s work is a blend of pop art and folk art, and is enjoyed and appreciated by both young and old alike.

Artscape took place in the stunning gardens of the Dallas Arboretum, located on the south shore of the tranquil White Rock Lake.

Artist's booths were set up between the huge trees in the garden

One can see from the bare trees that Spring had not quite arrived, but things will look a lot different in a couple of weeks.
