One of Baltimore's most beautiful settings will be showing off its place in the art world this weekend. More than 50 painters will be exhibiting their work at the Cylburn Arboretum's "Celebration of Art. " While the work will certainly be varied, they'll all share a common theme. Every piece will depict a scene set within the grounds of the 19th-century North Baltimore estate, once home to a prominent Baltimore businessman, now a picturesque oasis of flora and fauna. "When folks visit Cylburn, they find a space that is so inviting," said Nancy Hill, the arboretum's education director.

The next time you're in a liquor store browsing the shelves, imagine you're strolling through a garden. That bottle of gin is a juniper bush with citrus peels and maybe some coriander and even lavender thrown in for good measure. Tequila? Made from the roasted heart of an agave plant. The wine - that's easy - is a tangle of grapevines. That every spirits shop is a garden is the subject of Amy Stewart's best-selling book, "The Drunken Botanist: The Plants that Create the World's Great Drinks.

Hummingbirds, butterflies and bats are a few of the creatures sighted frequently during the evening hours, she said.

Baltimore City's Cylburn Arboretum is an artist's paradise, which is why painter Patricia Bennett has been drawn to the 207-acre grounds of trees and gardens since 2005. But unlike other artists who dot the landscape of the longtime city park, Bennett, of Mount Washington, now has an official reason to be there. Since January, the 36-year-old attorney's wife and busy mother of two young children has been working as Cylburn Arboretum's first-ever artist-in-residence, a program that city officials say is designed to formalize the natural connection between artists and the arboretum.
