Corona Virus Update

As requested by the Commonwealth of Virginia, the Wakefield Foundation will be closed for classes, events and meetings for the two weeks starting March 16, 2020.

At this time, we do not think that there will be any effect on the Flower & Art Show schedule.

The Flower and Art Show

This Spring, as every Spring for the past thirty two 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.

Opening Reception

This year, the opening reception will be from 7pm-9pm on the evening of Saturday, May 2. The admission will be $10 per person. The reception will features a wide selection of light refreshments and musical entertainment.

Family Day

Sunday, May 3, 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.

Call for Entries

If you have participated in the Show in the past few years, you should have received a Call for Entries in the mail around the first week of March. If you haven't received a copy, you can view a copy online or download a printable copy in PDF form. (Note: The PDF must be printed on legal size paper) You can also download a printable copy of just the entry form. The Call for Entries is due back by March 27
