On April 23, the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden held a reception for sponsors and special guests to get a sneak peek at the ‘Galleries at DeGolyer,’ a new area of the Artscape festival, before this juried fine art and fine craft show and sale opened over the weekend.
The Artscape co-chairs were Dallas Arboretum volunteers and community leaders, Sharon Ballew and Mari Epperson.
Artscape featured more than 90 outstanding artists from around the country showcase their art in the garden including 46 new artists showcasing painting, sculpture, photography, jewelry, glass and more. The festival also included live music, a university zone, adult beverages, food concessions, packaged treats and a Children’s Art Escape.
In addition to Artscape, guests enjoyed the newest summer exhibit, “Celebrate the Children,” created by acclaimed sculptor Gary Lee Price, which is on display through October 15. The collection features more than 25 different, hand-produced, bronze sculptures of children playfully interacting. The “Celebrate the Children” exhibition, presented by Reliant, is also supported by the Dallas Tourism Public Improvement District.
