On Monday, November 13, the Quadra Island Garden Club presents "Art in the Garden," an inspiring blend of beautiful images and entertaining stories that illustrate the aesthetic value of incorporating art into our gardens presented by Dr. Lee Gass.

Lee is a full-time sculptor and photographer who lives and works on Quadra Island. Prior to making his home on Quadra, Lee was an award-winning educator and science professor at UBC.

"Creating and maintaining beautiful gardens is a deeply meditative, artful and creative process. Gardens are even more beautiful with the presence of art. Including art in the garden creates a complementary focal point and reveals multiple levels of experiential beauty while enhancing the relationships between forms, shapes, textures and colours."

Lee will show a wide variety of ways to include all kinds of art in the garden including examples from around the world, from local artists and gardeners and from his own garden.

Everyone is welcome! Our monthly meetings are usually held at 7 pm on the second Monday of every month at the Quadra Community Centre.

Our events are free to garden club members; there is a $3 drop-in fee for visitors. Annual memberships to the Garden Club are only $10 for an individual and $15 per family.
