Event organizers are disappointed to share the news that 2021 Gallery in the Garden will have to be cancelled. Because the gardens are on private property, restrictions limited us to only ten people per garden. With our hosts and our artists, this does not allow us enough room for event participants.
We hope you will choose to join us for this very special event in July of 2022.
We invite you to check in next spring for 2022 Gallery in the Garden dates on our events and fundraisers page.
Thanks to the gardeners who agreed to share their garden and yard for our event and the work done in anticipation of it. We hope to view these landscapes in 2022. While we cannot visit these gardenn please enjoy this online look at Val’s Garden – This 5 acre masterpiece is the vision of Val Thomson. It has been featured in numerous publications and is always a highlight.
See more photos of gardens and past events on a facebook album here.
While there is no Gallery in the Garden, we do invite you to view the first ever art exhibit held at Birtle Centre for the Arts. It will be open in July. See the poster at the bottom of this page.
We thank the many artists who were so willing to share their work at our Gallery event and hope to see their work in person in July 2022.
