North Carolina Botanical Garden Press Release:

?The North Carolina Botanical Garden's Sculpture Show is one of the most innovative places to display outdoor sculpture? says [prior year] ?Best in Show? winner, artist Frances W.K. Alvarino. ?Art enthusiasts can come to one place and see many North Carolina artists' work, in a rich botanical atmosphere.?
The one-of-a-kind sculptures in a variety of media?clay, stone, various metals, and natural materials?will be displayed among the natural habitats and formal beds surrounding the Garden's Totten Center . ?Every year, the creativity and thoughtfulness of each piece is an inspiration to me,? proclaims Sculpture Show curator Stephen Keith. ?Two months is not enough time to thoroughly take in all these thought-provoking pieces.?

. . .

The North Carolina Botanical Garden, part of the the University of North Carolina, is located on Old Mason Farm Road just off the US 15-501 bypass in Chapel Hill . Admission to the Garden, as well as to the sculpture exhibition, is free and open to the public. The exhibition is geared toward all ages and will be enjoyed by the casual observer as well as the serious art collector. Most pieces are available for purchase, although no pieces will be removed before the end of the show.  

The public is cordially invited to attend the Artists' Reception and to visit several times during the two-month-long show, to enjoy seasonal variations in the garden landscape and to observe the ways in which these variations affect the appearance of the sculptures.  The exhibition is open during regular Garden visiting hours: Monday through Friday from 8 am to 5 pm, Saturday from 9 am to 6 pm and Sunday from 1 pm to 6 pm through October 30. Beginning October 31, weekend hours end at 5 pm.
