Our visit to Ruth Bancroft Gardens


Pat McDermont

Our May plein air gathering was at Ruth Bancroft Gardens, where we got an extra bonus of seeing their Ikebana exhibit! Beautiful and dramatic large-scale Japanese flower arrangements were displayed throughout the gardens.

The weather was great and our member artists were excited to find the perfect subjects to sketch, paint and photograph among the hundreds of possibilities.
