"FLOWER POWER" : garden+scapes : land+scapes : mind+scapes

Flowers as subject matter for art is not new. There is a reason flowers have such staying power in our imaginations. They consistently evoke beauty and a range of emotions, colors, ideas, memories, abstractions and more. Whether in a single stem, an arrangement, a garden, as part of an overall landscape, or growing in the wild, flowers have power. We are drawn to them. Flowers in gardenscapes, landscapes, or in your own imagination, mindscapes, will be the theme of this exhibition.
