17th Annual Hidden Gardens Events 2021
Garden Market on the Green
Saturday, August 28, 9:00am-2:30pm
The market will take place, as always, on the Green in the center of Spencertown. It will showcase vendors offering plants, home and garden furnishings, birdhouses, antiques, garden books, and expert garden advice, plus shoppers will find bargains on choice garden items and accessories at the Academy’s White Elephant Booth. A percentage of all sales benefit the Academy.
August 14-September 19
This year’s botanical show features scenes of tabletops and other settings where flowers, fruits and food items provide glimpses into daily life that can be restful, playful or downright intriguing! Seven artists with very distinct styles will present their visions of peaceful—and sometimes challenging—still-life renderings. Learn more.

Your Support is More Vital than Ever
This past Spring, as the country—and, indeed, most of the planet—went into shutdown mode, it was clear that the Spencertown Academy would need to make some hard decisions in the interest of keeping our community safe. So in March, we closed our doors.
But we didn’t abandon our mission—to build community through the arts. With your support we planned and produced a wide array of successful events and programs.
One of the benefits of online programming is its low overhead, so that virtually all of the proceeds go to our bottom line. But the reality is that the pandemic has severely reduced our revenue stream and we are behind where we should be. While your support is always valued, this year it is more vital than ever. Please make your tax-deductible gift today.
