This week we spent an afternoon with artist Andrew Crawford to finalize plans and select locations for The State Botanical Garden of Georgia's first art exhibition within the gardens. We're so excited! Andrew is working on 6 gates that will be placed in the Visitor Center, International Garden, Heritage Garden and Flower Garden in March and stay in place throughout 2011. There will be an exhibit of drawings, video and sample pieces in the Visitor Center lobby during March and April. There will also be special events, talks, trips, contests and gift shop items - all celebrating this wonderful exhibition of metal garden gates that will range from about 5' to 10' tall. You'll hear more soon, but for a glimpse of what's coming look at Andrew's facebook page (Andrew T. Crawford Ironworks) and a few videos on his website (www.ironisking.com/media).
