From April 22 to June 27, 2021, The Santa Barbara Botanical Garden will welcome artist Libby Holland as its first-ever Artist in Residence. For eight weeks, Holland will immerse herself in the garden’s native plantings for an exploration of “blooming where you’re planted”, painting live in the garden 3 days a week (Thursday- Saturday). Members and guests are encouraged to come and watch the paintings unfold, as well as interact with the artist herself.
Holland’s recent work celebrates all that grows and blossoms, focusing on the allure and practicality of water-wise plants. “A painting of something seemingly quite common can amplify its beauty, giving a fresh perspective to the viewer,” she says. “My pieces share a passion—for promoting native, drought-resistant plants, vital to the local ecology—with The Botanical Garden.” The collection will be exhibited this fall in Santa Barbara.
