Art work and orchids on display

Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden, in Belmont, is pairing 24 works of art by Lost Hollow designer W. Gary Smith with at least 80 varieties of orchids in the Orchid Conservatory. Joe Dorrian, the conservatory manager, and horticulturalist Mary Duke placed upward of 2,000 orchids on Thursday. The Art & Orchids display will be open to the public Jan. 17-March 18. The iron artwork displayed in the children’s garden, Lost Hollow, were taken from the same pool of art by Smith. John Simmons
