11th Annual Art in the Gardens

Sponsored by Hoover Arts Alliance


On June 1 and 2, thousands of art enthusiasts strolled through the Gardens and enjoyed the works of some terrific regional artists. We had both returning favorites and fresh faces exhibiting their painting, sculpture, jewelry, glass, clay, woodworking, photography and mixed media pieces.
