Annmarie Sculpture Garden & Arts Center in Solomons is excited to announce the Art Blooms: Fabulous Floral Fantasies exhibit that will be open for just two days, July 18th and 19th from 10am to 5pm each day. Admission to the exhibit is FREE.
Art Blooms is a weekend exhibit held in the Dennis Murray Arts Building, featuring the work of more than 25 floral designers from across the region. Each floral designer is assigned a work of art currently in the Main and Mezzanine Galleries and is invited to create a floral arrangement inspired by that work of art. The designers are asked to draw inspiration from two exhibits this year.
The first exhibit, Cosmos: Imagining the Universe, captures how artists render the work of scientists, authors, explorers, astronomers, cartoonists, Trekkies, LARPers, astrologers, and philosophers. This exhibit embraces not only what science has revealed about space, but what humans have imagined about the cosmos.
The second exhibit, Heroes & Villains: Exploring Archetypes Through Art, celebrates the complexities and nuances of heroes and villains that populate history, literature, popular culture, folklore, mythology, psychology, and other realms of human experience and expression. The resulting floral arrangement beautiful, and provocative and not to be missed.
This year marks the fifth year for Art Blooms, the exhibit co-hosted by the Calvert Garden Club and Ann’s Circle of Annmarie Garden. Don’t miss the Free Floral Design Demonstration on Saturday 10:30am – Noon.
