The Flower and Art Show
This Spring, as every Spring for the past thirty years, we will be presenting our unique exhibition, The Flower and Art Show. Any artist, working in any medium, may submit one work to be presented in the Show. During the exhibition, each work is accompanied by a floral arrangement designed to complement and harmonize with it in a unified display.
This year, the opening reception will be from 7pm-9pm on the evening of Saturday, May 5. The admission will be $10 per person. The reception will features a wide selection of light refreshments and musical entertainment.
Sunday, May 6, will be Family Day at the Flower and Art Show. The exhibit will be open from noon until 4pm to provide an opportunity for those who couldn't attend Saturday's opening, especially families with smaller children, to see the show. Admission is by donation and light refreshments will be served.
