Welcome to Simply Elemental 2020!

Welcome to the 2020 Simply Elemental Virtual Show

Everything that slows us down and forces patience, everything that sets us back into the slow circles of nature, is a help. Gardening is an instrument of grace.
~~~ May Sarton

As the world around us continues to change in unpredictable ways, the garden remains generous in its stability and beauty. It also possesses the ability to inspire us to “grow” art beyond the plants themselves.
As you take this visual garden tour, we hope you are nurtured and delighted by the interface of many art forms and the luxuriant abundance of our local gardens.

On behalf of the Hahn Garden and the Art in the Garden Committee we would like to thank all artists for sharing their beauty, inspiration and creations. We also would like to thank you for visiting our virtual show.
