Garden Walk Buffalo Niagara will hold an exhibition of artwork that was created during Open Gardens last year. (During Open Gardens, clusters of private gardens are open to the public on Thursdays or Fridays. Open Gardens will be held again this year in July.)

The opening of the art exhibit will be held from 6 to 9 p.m. Friday, June 5 at Studio Hart, 65 Allen St, Buffalo.

The exhibit continues through June 27. Hours are 11:30 a.m. to  3:30 p.m. Tuesday-Friday and noon to 4 p.m. Saturday.

The event celebrates the uniting of Garden Walk Buffalo and the National Garden Festival into the new organization, Garden Walk Buffalo Niagara.

Original art that has inspired Garden Walk Buffalo posters over the years will also be shown.

Many artworks, as well as prints of the posters, will be available for purchase.
