WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY)– It was a beautiful opening for Art in the Arboretum, a two-day event presented in the New Hanover County Arboretum.

Plants, flowers, stained glass, and paintings are only a few of the show pieces displayed by local artists at this year’s event.

The annual fundraiser is held by Friends of the Arboretum and the New Hanover County Cooperative Extension, as well as the Wilmington Art Association. The joint effort benefits both artists and the facility. Artists graciously donate half of the proceeds to the upkeep of the Arboretum.

    The smell of roses and the proliferation of well cultivated plants of all kinds made Arbotretum a spectacular distraction. Wilmington has inspired many artists.
