Grandiflora: Gamrath Glass
The Garden is thrilled to celebrate its 20th anniversary with an awe-inspiring, larger-than-life botanical glass exhibit, Grandiflora: Gamrath Glass at the Garden. Guests will be mesmerized by hundreds of pieces making up dozens of vibrant sculptures by Seattle-based artist Jason Gamrath including towering 10-foot orchids, vivid pitcher plants, energetic Venus flytraps and more. The garden’s annual beds will feature big, bold, beautiful plants with large flowers and leaves to complement Gamrath’s sculptures.
By day visitors are welcome to explore the Garden and glass sculpture throughout, while at night the sculptures will be illuminated and visitors can listen to live music while relaxing with a beverage in the Beer Garden.
The Garden is grateful for the following supporters who helped make this exhibit possible: May & Carroll Barger, Mr. & Mrs. James J. Bissell, Anne & Tom Efird, Gaston Community Foundation, Pam & Andy Warlick and Pat & Bill Williamson.

About Jason Gamrath
The immensity of Gramrath’s botanical works captivates audiences and calls attention to the beauty of normally tiny details within the natural world. A Seattle area native, Gramrath began studying glass sculpting at the young age of 15 and has worked and trained with many renowned artists including Preston Singletary, Karen Willenbrink, Richard Royal, Ross Richmond and Sally Prasch. His work is collected internationally and the pieces on display at the Garden will also be available for purchase.
