You can tiptoe through the tulips and view an art exhibition framed by manicured gardens at the Creative Expressions Art Show presented by Rainier League of Arts and Lakewold Gardens, June 1-3. Local artists will be showing their work and demonstrating art techniques in this beautiful garden setting at 12317 Gravelly Lake Dr. SW, in Lakewood. Art including paintings and blown glass will be available for purchase.
Lakewold Gardens is an exquisite work of art in itself with landscape architecture by Thomas Church surrounded by rare and native plants, State Champion trees, over 900 rhododendrons, 30 Japanese maples and stunning statuary. Lakewold’s 10 lush acres are completed by the architecture of a Georgian-style mansion, a Washington State historic landmark.
