In 2015, BAGSC had a wonderful opportunity to exhibit in Van de Kamp Hall at Descanso Gardens. The show, A Passion for Camellias, was shown in conjunction with the first Camellia flower show of the 2015 show season. [Read about the past articles right here on the BAGSC Blog: http://bagscblog.com/2015/05/01/bagsc-botanical-camellia-art-exhibit-at-descansos-boddy-house/ and http://bagscblog.com/2015/01/20/bagsc-exhibits-botanical-camellia-art-at-descanso-camellia-flower-show/%5D
The show was so successful, Descanso Gardens requested 11 art works from the initial display of 20 be re-hung in the historic and beautifully restored Boddy House, where they have remained on display.
BAGSC now has the opportunity to exhibit at Descanso as a feature of their May 14th and 15th, 2016 Rose Festival. Entitled “Everything’s Coming Up Roses”, the subject matter, is, of course, ROSES!
