The New Hanover Garden Club invites you to its second annual Art & the Bloom event Jan. 9-12 at the Blockade Runner Beach Resort in Wrightsville Beach.
Celebrate Art & The Bloom with floral arrangements inspired by fine art with the bloom arrangements presented with the artwork.
This exhibit can be viewed at the Preview Party Thursday Evening, then Friday through Sunday. You’re also invited to attend some additional Special Events and Sessions (Afternoon Teas, and Floral Arranging and more) please access Social Media to get tickets.
The Art & the Bloom is an exhibition which challenges floral designers to create artistic arrangements that interpret a piece of fine art.
Last year’s event saw over 23 designers representing over 10 regional garden clubs. Half of them were professional master judges.
Many of the other participants were master designers working in the floral trade. The designers were assigned a work of art to interpret through a blind draw. The resulting arrangements were judged and awards presented.
