25th Annual Garden Walk

"The Fine Art of Gardening"

The Fine Art of Gardening

Since 1996, the Indianapolis Garden Club has showcased beautiful, private gardens across the city each summer.  2020, our 25th anniversary year for this event will be no exception with 5 gardens open to guests! We continue "The Fine Art of Gardening" by highlighting local artists working en plein air within each garden with opportunities to purchase art.   IGC proudly directs all proceeds from our Garden Walk back into the Indianapolis area.  Since the inception of Garden Walk, IGC has granted over $500,000 in the areas of conservation, civic improvement, and beautification to projects within our community.

The Gardens

Eclectic Shaded Wonderland

Expect the unexpected as you stroll through this secluded garden.  This unstructured garden offers a variety of tropical plants and is a natural haven for birds.  Come explore this charming garden full of natural wonders. 

Artist: Meet Kyle Ragsdale and watch him apply his whimsical style  to canvas.

Inspired by Generations

Wander throughout this wooded property and you are greeted with an eclectic mix of thoughtfully placed plantings acquired from generations of inspired family gardeners.  Classic boxwood and roses flank the home’s facade and a woodland path leads visitors to a forested ravine and the meticulously planned poolside gardens.

Artist: You will find Alicia Zanoni capturing the surprising elements in familiar scenes in this garden.

A Designer's Mostly Tidy Garden

A garden which has been created with care, whimsy and affection by a landscape architect and his wife.  The result of mostly careful planning, it’s also randomly scattered with a mix of plants and landscape features salvaged from elsewhere- castaways from other gardens.  Considered a working laboratory of sorts, with numerous uncommon or untried species, many areas are shaded by mature trees.

Artist: Beth Forst will be interpreting this garden with her use of exuberant color and style.

Cars and Stars

Classic cars and movie stars held sway at this historic mansion.  Walk around the lawn or mingle on the full-width front porch to appreciate this spacious sun and shade garden.

Artists: Susie Rachles can be seen dreaming on canvas while Lisa Pelo’s glass works will be displayed to capture the light and spirit of this garden.

White and Bright

All white flowers and variegated leaves make up the plantings in a garden of shady paths, a contemporary pool and an orchard cottage garden.

Artists: Douglas David will reflect the tranquil setting of this garden on canvas along with Amy Carroll who is inspired by creating natural images on porcelain objects.

Elegant, Inviting and Urbane

Mature trees, crabapple orchards, colorful perennials and annuals grow in this thoughtfully designed landscape.  The lush gardens and open spaces, bluestone patios and vine-covered pool house were added to complement the European style of this 1920’s house.  Walkways create seamless transitions from  one entertaining space to the next.  The impressive stone balustrade separating the rear patio from the expansive lower lawn and the original, charming chauffeur’s cottage await you.

Artists: David M. Seward’s desire to capture the beauty of creation will be his inspiration to paint along side Pamela Newell’s use of rich color to describe the light and mood of this garden.
