Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens’ “Stickwork” Sculpture show by world-famous artist Patrick Dougherty.
From May 2 - 22, watch as artist-in-residence Patrick Dougherty builds a large-scale, temporary sculpture of woven sticks and saplings in the Anderson Meadow at Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens in Richmond, VA. They are calling the process “Meadowmorphosis.” Dougherty arrives at the site of each new installation with no preconceptions as to what he will create. Using locally gathered natural materials and drawing on inspiration from the surrounding environment, he designs larger-than-life sculptures.
The contest two winners, chosen at random from among the contest entries, each receive a set of four passes (valued at $40). They are:
~ Ann Marie Moriarty
~ Tom Pluecker
Congratulations to Tom and Ann Marie!
Entrants were asked to tell us: "What is the best-smelling plant growing in your garden right now?"
Fragrant choices included:
~ Lemon Mint
~ Viburnum Carlesii
~ Daphne odora variegated (winter daphne)
So what is growing in YOUR garden now that is scent-sational?
