Still Life with Irises

In Bloom: Flowers in Art


At a time when we are all preoccupied by the challenges of world events, we thought we would focus on something timeless: beauty. And what better way to contemplate beauty than with flowers! Artists have long used flowers and floral still life as a means to explore color, creativity, process and technique. And for many artists their exploration of the subject was and is a way to connect with and explore the natural world. This exhibition will range from exquisite floral watercolors on vellum from the late 18th century to vibrant Cubist abstractions from the 1920s to bold plein-air landscapes from today. The opening reception is on Wednesday, June 5th from 5:30pm to 8pm, and the exhibition will remain on view through Labor Day. Please be sure to visit us this summer!
