ART in BLOOM exhibit at DVAA

This was my first time exhibiting in the Annual Art in Bloom exhibition with the Delaware Valley Arts Alliance and I am still smiling after several days of absorbing the magnificent energy of art and flowers! Impressive and highly creative visual and floral art throughout the show. Because the floral interpretations are all created with LIVE flowers, the show was a short 3 days but I did take many photos and decided to share them so you can see that I am not overstating the creativity that went into all of the work.

Here is a list of the participating artists and the floral designers that interpreted the work:

Mark Friedrichsen ART with Kristin Porter FLORAL
Debra Cortese ART with Cecilia Lamy FLORAL
Paul Plumadore ART with Carole Linkiewicz FLORAL
Daria Dorosh ART with Sharon Chopping FLORAL
Ellen Kantro ART with Claudine Luchsinger FLORAL
Brandi Merolla ART with Alison Peck FLORAL
Hanna Marritz ART with Mia & Joe Koerner FLORAL
Lenore Fiore Mills ART with Anne Manby FLORAL
Trix Render ART with Juliet Dunn FLORAL
Allan Rubin ART with Donna Marchesin FLORAL
Dasha Ziborova ART with Sandy Schrader FLORAL

Some of the photos are a bit fuzzy. It was opening night and my inner photographer was not fully cooperating – or she is just more attuned to taking pictures of nature subjects outdoors 😉

If you are the floral or visual artist for any of the images shown, let me know and I’ll add your name to the image and if you would like a copy, contact me by (email or phone).

Special thanks to Cecilia Lamy for the incredible floral interpretation she created for my “Fractal Deer Totems” and to Jane Luchsinger who curated the show and Rocky Pinciotti for sharing my work with Jane.
