Garden Art Gallery - Sculpture Exhibition

About the Exhibition

A unique once yearly event, the Garden Art Gallery sculpture Exhibition is one of the finest outdoor sculpture exhibitions in the triangle region of North Carolina.


The sculpture exhibition is an outdoor exhibition of both local and nationally recognized sculptors. The event takes place the first and second weekend of May each year in the sculpture gardens created over 30 years by Tinka Jordy and Mark Donley.

The gardens are situated on over 10 acres and include intimate garden settings, winding paths and larger open spaces. Smaller sculptures and garden art are uniquely situated in intimate settings and very large sculptures are placed in the more open spaces.  As always, artists receive 100% of their sales without commission to the gallery. 

For 26 years we are both humbled and honored to have shared our gardens with some of the most exceptional contemporary sculptors we know.

This event is free and open to the public

2020 Sculpture Exhibition Dates and Times

Accepting that these are difficult times, we have postponed the annual sculpture exhibition to early fall 2020. In 26 years this is our first cancellation. ...and hopefully life will return to normal soon for all of us!

We will post dates when we can make a good decision.

In the meantime, as you can imagine, these are difficult times for artists. On the 'Exhibiting Artists' page there are live links to all artists websites. Please feel free to visit their websites, view work and say hello!  

We wish everyone the very best.
