Experience an exquisite garden through the eyes of talented artists this weekend as Milner Garden’s Art and Photography in the Garden returns.

Twenty artists will have their work displayed while working on new pieces and the public can chat them up and be inspired.

The public will see bonsai, photography, carving, pottery, painting and more while enjoying live music. Back by popular demand the Mid Island Floral Art Club will have display pieces using live or previously living material.

“It’s very unique,” said director of Milner Gardens, Geoff Ball. “They were here last year and were extremely well received.”

The Tea Room will be open from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. for tea, soup and scones and refreshments and smokies will also be available on the grand lawn.

The event runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, July 21 and Sunday, July 22. Weekend admission is $10. For more information visit www.viu.ca/milnergardens.
