Paint by Nature Exhibit & Brunch: Spending extra time in Lexington? If arriving early, you are invited to the Paint by Nature brunch on Thursday, September 27. This exhibit and brunch will showcase the work of local artists who painted greenways and streamside restoration projects. This event is being carried out by the City of Lexington’s “Plant by Numbers” program, which is designed to help non-gardeners create beautiful, low maintenance, pollinator-friendly landscapes using native plants. You must register for the brunch by September 19. You must provide your own transportation to/from the brunch as it is not part of the official America in Bloom program schedule.
