Four garden blocks in the center of Beverly Hills will be brimming with 250 artists from throughout California, the Southwest, and the rest of the country. All art at the show will be for sale – from painting to pottery, from fine art printmaking to photography, and more.

The artSHOW will celebrate the newly completed, multi-year renovation of historic Beverly Gardens Park. The art show takes place on four blocks, from Rodeo Drive to Rexford Drive, of the 23-block, 1.9 mile green space in Beverly Gardens Park. A special feature, Garden Party, will showcase artists who create intriguing garden-like settings in their work. The dreamy landscapes of painter Taman Vanscoy, the complex, “Persian carpet” paintings of Nilu Azimi, the psychological portrayals of leafy suburban life by Robin Walker, and the floral “glass walls” of James Rose will be on view.

Additionally, the Beverly Hills Historical Society will display photographs of the grand formal gardens of Greystone Mansion, courtesy of photographer Richard Zale Rubins. The Water Conservation team from the Beverly Hills Public Works Department will showcase the lush, yet water-wise Gottlieb Native Garden, located in northern Beverly Hills, and share information about saving water while maintaining a beautiful garden! Jeweler/sculptor Deidre Greene will be making jewel-like copper windmills for your home garden throughout the weekend, and artists Carol Steinberg and Lisa Baldwin, will paint garden scenes during live demonstrations at designated times.
