Even as it is misting heavily this gray, June morning, I am excited about Thursday, June 13th’s Botanical Exotica II. Artist Jason Gamrath created amazing gigantic Glass Orchids for the first event on April 11th and this Thursday he will reveal Fantastical Carnivorous plants.
The April Opening was amazing, the Orchids are located in the Palm House of the Conservatory: each turn of a corner reveals yet another amazing art piece placed in amongst the plantings. As the sun sets, the play of color and texture and form in the Conservatory changes; creating a dynamic, evolving exhibit. The Orchids will be on display through the end of the Show this fall.
This opening will build upon the foundation of his Orchid display, the Carnivorous plants will be exhibited in the Fern House, and I anticipate another fantastical Opening.
Come and see this amazing display on Thursday Night from 5-8pm. There will be an entry fee of $12 for non-Annual Pass Holders and $8 for Annual Pass Holders. The Conservatory will closed from 4-5.
