August in the Main Gallery: Flowers and Gardens
First Friday, August 7th
It’s high summer and gardens are in full bloom. You have to love the summer garden with all its bright colors and heavenly smells, even the weeds look pretty when they flower.
Flowers have played a role in most art forms provoking emotions and as gestures of sentiment. With a Google search, you can uncover lists of flowers and their historic meanings, their use in folklore and fairy lore, and numerous quotes by famous artists and writers.
311 has invited artists to participate in a juried show that celebrates flowers and gardens. Works span the gamut from abstract to very realistic in a variety of media. We hope you’ll stop by this month and visit our summer garden.
