The Art in the Garden tour is an annual spring event where visual artists and musicians present and sell their work in private gardens across the North Shore. Gardens may see 100-300 people per day, coming to be inspired by the gardens and the artists. Gardens need to be able to accommodate two visual artists and performing musicians. Preference will be given to those gardens that have some structural cover for the musicians, as the event goes ahead in all weather, rain or shine. North Van Arts will produce a full colour brochure with a map and images of all participating gardens and work of visual artists and a listing of musicians. Garden admission is $2 per adult, with an all-garden pass available for $20. The event will include up to 14 gardens.
If you are a dedicated gardener, or group of gardeners that have been working hard on your garden, we want to hear from you! In 2019 we would love to include gardens that have plants that can be used in craft and creative practices. If you have a garden with plants that inspire creation, we want to hear from you.
