Buffalo, NY - The Buffalo and Erie County Botanical Gardens announced today that the annual Succulent Exhibit will take place September 3 through October 2.  In compliment to the Succulent Exhibit, Sarah J. Carr-Mansouri will also exhibit a photography collection titled, Enchanted Nature in the Arcangel Gallery.  Both exhibits are open to the public and will be on display through October 2 from 10am to 5pm daily. 

The striking and unusual appearance of succulent plants is what makes the Succulent Exhibit a visitor favorite at the Botanical Gardens.  This year, the exhibit will feature thousands of cacti and succulents displayed in very unique ways throughout the conservatory.  Succulents come in all different shapes and sizes and have unique textures with a mix of fantastic colors.  These characteristics inspired the horticulture staff and volunteers to create living interpretations of modern art from artists such as James Ensor, Franz Marc and Josef Albers.  This much anticipated exhibit also highlights extremely creative ways to display these charming plants including; a giant cobra, turtles and other creatures made of succulents. The Succulent Exhibit will be on display at the Botanical Gardens September 3 through October 2 from 10am to 5pm daily (with the exception of September 30 as the Botanical Gardens will be closed that day).  The Succulent Exhibit is included with Botanical Gardens Admission; $9 for adults, $8 for seniors (55+), $8 for students (13+ with ID), $5 for children (3-12), and children under 2 and Garden members are always free.

Photographer Sarah J. Carr-Mansouri exhibits her first show in the Arcangel Gallery at the Botanical Gardens entitled Enchanted Nature.  Sarah utilizes a unique metal printing process and traditional framing to display her work.  Enchanted Nature is a spiritual glimpse of nature’s divinity through vibrant color, shape, texture and perspective. This exhibit will nourish the soul with art and take visitors on a magical journey as seen through the eyes of a dragonfly. Enchanted Nature is on display now through October 2 from 10am to 5pm daily (with the exception of September 30 as the Botanical Gardens will be closed that day) and is included with Botanical Gardens Admission; $9 for adults, $8 for seniors (55+), $8 for students (13+ with ID), $5 for children (3-12), and children under 2 and Garden members are always free.
