This post has been updated with the new date for the paint-out. The paint-out, originally scheduled for August 21, 2018, has been rescheduled due to weather concerns.
So much to sketch. paint or photograph on Thursday, August 23, 2018 between 9 am and noon! As shown in Jane Kellenberger’s photos above, artists can choose from picturesque views or detailed close-ups in colors galore at The Gardens of Ball at the Ball Horticultural Company worldwide headquarters, 622 Town Road, West Chicago, Il.
The Gardens at Ball have been the evaluation and testing grounds for the world’s wealth of horticultural introductions and improvements for over 80 years. What began as a row trial garden for seed varieties in 1933 has grown to encompass over 9 acres of display beds for annuals, perennials, cut flowers and vegetables, including the newest plants from the industry’s leading breeders and marketers.
