American Gardens on Canvas, a New Art Exhibit at the New York Botanical Garden

The New York Botanical Garden has a new exhibit opening next weekend titled American Gardens on Canvas that explores the horticultural inspiration behind American impressionist painters.

American Impressionism, a prominent artistic style that flourished at the turn of the 20th century, comes to life in a captivating Garden-wide exhibition. In the Conservatory, stroll through an American Impressionist garden, a stunning interpretation by Francisca Coelho, NYBG's renowned curator and designer, of the alluring gardens that influenced iconic artists such as Childe Hassam and John Singer Sargent. In the Art Gallery, view a beautiful complementary display of more than 20 paintings and sculptures by these famed artists and their contemporaries that capture the colors, shadows, and ephemeral quality of light they observed in the natural world and infused in their distinctive imagery

See the exhibit at the New York Botanic Garden any time during normal admission hours from May 14th through September 11th, 2016.
