Stop and smell the roses … and look at them, too!
Flowers of many varieties are on display at the Arts Council during the 2nd Art and Flowers Exhibition, presented by The Ellington-White Contemporary Gallery. The show opens during 4th Friday on April 22 (7 to 9 p.m.) and runs through May 21.
Art and Flowers celebrates original floral creations by today’s contemporary artists, with eye-catching floral arrangements created by local area floral designers and event planners.
This juried exhibition showcases over 60 works of art submitted from 40 artists from across the country, along with local area floral designers and event planners. It demonstrates the continued significance by artists of botanical art through both conventional and innovative methods.
The selected artists will be exhibiting a wide range of creative 2D media from traditional floral and abstract paintings, photography, collage and fabric textiles. Submitted works come from as far away as San Francisco and as near as Fayetteville.
Floral arrangements judged by nationally certified flower show judges from the Garden Club Council of Fayetteville and garden clubs of the region will be exhibited with the works of art for a limited time (while the flowers last).
Image selection jurors were professors Shane Booth, Soni Martin and Dwight Smith from the Department of Performing and Fine Arts at Fayetteville State University.
This project is supported by a Project Support Grant and an Exhibition Space Grant from the Arts Council.
