SARASOTA, FL – July 29, 2020 – Marie Selby Botanical Gardens (Selby Gardens) and the Duncan McClellan Gallery (DMG) in St. Petersburg present the third annual summer glass show In Dialogue with Nature: Glass in the Gardens August 8 to September 20, 2020 at Selby Gardens’ Downtown Sarasota campus.

“We are thrilled to welcome Duncan McClellan and his studio artists back to Selby Gardens this summer,” says Selby Gardens’ President & CEO Jennifer Rominiecki. “Members and visitors will have the opportunity to view spectacular glass art while enjoying respite in our bayfront sanctuary.”

This year, the exhibition will feature nature-inspired glass work created exclusively by Duncan McClellan and his studio artists which will be displayed in the Tropical Conservatory, the Museum of Botany & the Arts, and the koi pond against a backdrop of lush flowers and plants. The botanically-themed glassworks will be for sale with a significant portion of the proceeds benefiting Selby Gardens’ mission. 

“Selby Gardens is a beautiful and complimentary location for the nature-themed glass created by the artists,” says Duncan McClellan, owner of Duncan McClellan Gallery.  “We look forward to collaborating with Selby Gardens and showcasing our work in Sarasota again this year.”
