This year's 27th annual Art in the Arboretum will include a hybrid of the historic gallery exhibits from local artists and students as well as an art festival tent displayed throughout the gardens.

Sip, Savor & Shop launch party and preview sale for members of Friends of the Arboretum: Friday, November 4th, 6-9pm

Public art sale: Saturday & Sunday, November 5-6, 10am-4pm daily

Proceeds from art purchased throughout the event will be divided between the artist, the Friends of the Arboretum nonprofit organization, and the Wilmington Art Association.

The Arboretum, 6206 Oleander Drive in Wilmington, is the botanical jewel of southeastern North Carolina, with seven acres of splendor open, for free, to the public. And through its affiliation with North Carolina State University and that university’s Cooperative Extension Service outreach, Arboretum staffers offer a multitude of services, including soil testing and plant disease and pest triage.
