Art in the Gardens

We are hosting a number of "art-filled" events throughout the summer including Paint the Gardens! Be sure to look through all the dates below and circle them on your calendar! 

An Invitation to all artists

To celebrate the 150th anniversary of the Halifax Public Gardens, the Friends of the Public Gardens (TFPG) invite art groups and individual artists to “Paint the Gardens” – select a Saturday*, bring your supplies, pick a site, and be inspired by the historic statues, fountains, bandstand, architecture, gates or the beautiful flowers, trees, ponds and life within the Public Gardens. 

To date, nearly 100 artists have registered for this event. We are scheduling 15 artists for each of the eight Saturdays.

Four Saturdays are full: June 24, July 22; August 12; and Sept 9.

Four Saturdays still have openings: July 15; July 29; August 19; and Sept 16

Registration will remain open till all Saturdays are filled.  Information and Registration Form below.
