Topiary sculptures on display at Fellows

The topiary works of local artist Mike Gibson are now on display at Fellows Riverside Gardens, 123 McKinley Ave., on the West Side.

Gibson has used his self-taught skills in topiary – the art of trimming trees or shrubs into ornamental shapes – to create

a series of whimsical living sculptures on the gardens’ grounds.

The free exhibit is titled “A Diamond in the Rough,” which is a nod to Fellows 60th anniversary celebration. It is being displayed now through Dec. 31.

A Meet the Artist session will take place Aug. 12 from 1 to 3 p.m. at the gazebo at Fellows Riverside Gardens.

For information, call Fellows at 330-740-7116.

Gibson’s landscape work can be seen throughout the Mahoning Valley at local businesses and private residences.
