ART in the Garden traditionally celebrates the kick off for our season of visual and performing arts, with, this year, the installation of The Wild Horses of Sable Island, showcasing the extraordinary work of artist, photographer and environmentalist Roberto Dutesco. Dutesco portrays the wild beauty of these horses as well as the barren and unspoiled qualities of the island, creating a photographic memoir that captures both the soul and the spirit.
