Garden Nights Returns

After a long day at work or a stressful day in life there is something to be said about a garden on a southern, summer night. With much anticipation, Garden Nights returned on June 3...the weather had called for rain all day but it turned out to be one gorgeous opening night! Garden Nights will take place every Thursday in June, July and August from 5 - 9 p.m. With our new exhibit, Come Sit A Spell, Garden Nights has tied in special southern themed festivities to be planned to coincide with the exhibit. Last night we kicked off with music from Carmen Giardino Sax and a K.Leigh Cuisine tasting and demonstration about summer vegetable risotto and a discussion on local dairy. Below is a peek into what all we have in store:
  • Come Sit A Spell Awards Ceremony
  • K.Leigh Cuisine tasting and demonstrations
  • Appearances from the Gaston School of the Arts
  • Botanical Illustration and Floral Painting Continuing Education Class
  • Photography for Advanced and Beginning Photographers Continuing Education Classes
  • Re-Purposed Planter Workshop
  • Book Discussion
Visit our DSBG event calendar to see what special southern fun we'll have planned each Garden Nights. Also new this year carriage rides will be available, for an additional fee and weather permitting, from Southern Breezes Carriages. Food and drinks will available for purchase from Something Classic Catering and live music will be provided every Thursday.

Stop by Thursday afternoon and "sit a spell"...unwind while strolling through the gardens & fountains, take a break and sit and relax on our exhibit pieces, enjoy great eats and music! We'll try to make time slow down for you just a bit!
