BAGSC is planning a Camellia Art Show in conjunction with the Camellia Society Camellia Show at Descanso Gardens in January, 2015. The show would be for two days and it is hoped that it will coincide with Descanso’s Camellia Week. It is possible we may be able to move the show to the Boddy House for a longer period of time.

I would like to get an idea of the number of people who would have paintings they would like to enter into the show. I would suggest that we hang original art in BAGSC’s standard light wood frames. Please email me (by clicking on the word “email”) the number of paintings you think you would like to submit by August 29, 2014. Space is limited in the hall in which the Camellia Show will be held, so we may have to limit the number of entries if we get too many.

If you missed the Spring-blooming Camellias, you’re still in luck—there are many Camellias which bloom in the Fall. The seed pods for Camellias which bloomed during the Spring are just now maturing, in case you want to include them in your work.

Watch the blog and your email for more information about the show as it develops.
