Submit Your Photographs to 'In Our Garden: The Dixon through Your Lens'

For more than forty years, the Dixon’s seventeen acres of gardens have provided photographic inspiration to visitors from across the Mid-South and all over the world. This spring, we invite you share how our gardens have been featured in your photography through the upcoming exhibition In Our Garden: The Dixon through Your Lens, on view July 22 – October 7, 2018 in the Mallory/Wurtzburger Galleries. 

From close-ups of individual plants and flowers to sweeping garden views, we look forward to seeing how both amateur and professional photographers have captured the unique beauty of the Dixon Gardens throughout our history and up to today. Please contact Katie Kizer, Exhibitions Assistant, at or (901) 761-5250, ext. 129, by June 15 to submit your photography for consideration.
