“Wallflowers”: An Exhibit & Competition
“Wallflowers: Buds, Blooms, & Blossoms” will be on view September 1-30. Apply to the exhibition by August 10, 2018. “Wallflowers” focuses on the beauty of flowers from big lush peonies and perfect roses to the smallest snowdrops and dandelions. Few things evoke more memories or encompass more symbolism. Humans long for the first flowers of spring in their gardens, and they commemorate special occasions with them throughout the year. Share the flowers that you love in rolling meadows, formal gardens, a single bud vase, or an entire a room. For more information or to submit work, click here.
