ArtFest – San Diego Botanic Garden

ArtFest at the Garden features some of the finest regional artists displaying their talents with the beautiful San Diego Botanic Garden as a back drop.

Our fine arts show features more than 20 artists displaying and selling their work at amazing prices just for Garden guests. Many of these fantastic sculptors, painters, glass artists, potters, gourd and fiber artists who participate in ArtFest will also provide interesting demonstrations of their craft.

The quick draw contest features artists who will create an entire work of art in the allotted time right before visitors’ eyes. After judging, these pieces will be available for purchase at ArtFest.

Celebrating the art of Asian horticulture is the focus of our Asian art show, featuring outstanding displays of Ohara School of Ikebana, La Jolla Chapter and Bonsai, along with informative lectures and demonstrations.
