The Botanical Center – It’s More Than Just Plants

The North Wing Gallery and Show House Corridor are mini art galleries which are open to the public to enjoy while they view the beautiful dome and lush outside gardens.  This art work changes every few months and is for sale with the proceeds benefiting the Botanical Center.

Currently in the North Wing Gallery is a display of 40 large color photographs by Friends Director, Elvin McDonald.  Elvin has had the opportunity to visit professional and amateur gardens all over the world which has resulted in a wonderful portfolio of photographs.  The images he chose for this display best tell the story of his life in the garden.

The Show House Corridor is showcasing the delightful flower images of Omaha artist April Kelly.  Her art represents beauty, energy, and light; her work is refreshing and happy.  April’s work is acrylic on canvas and she uses a special finish to give the work an illusion of a glass coating.

We hope you look for this art work when you visit the Botanical Center.
