Flora in Winter - Floral Interpretations of Art

Sorry to be so slow in posting these, especially as the event is ending, but it was quite the busy and flower filled week for me, as I'm sure you can imagine! So here we go with Flora in Winter at the Worcester Art Museum:


First up, from the Pre-Columbian Gallery, Urn with Figure with Bow-knot Headdress, Mexico, Nancy A. Roberts designer. As you'll see, some of the artworks picked by the museum for interpretation were really difficult, but Nancy nailed this challenging one!

Untitled, Ilya Bolotowsky, Deborah Coleman/Ruth Gorman/Jackie Potenzone designers.

I need Husband to take up welding, so I can do work like this!

Arrangement in Black and Brown: The Fur Jacket, James Abbott McNeill Whistler, Kim Cutler designer. OK, we have this giant painting of a woman, and it's mostly black with a hint of brown - are you up for the challenge?




Not all of the flowers in the museum were interpretations of artworks; the public spaces were also filled with flowers. We absolutely loved this "under the sea" piece by Virginia Orlando!

Electra Receiving the Ashes of her Brother, Orestes, Jean-Baptiste Joseph Wicar, Brandy Scheibner designer.

Really thoughtful interpretation of this painting - love the grid of leaves and poms and the gestures of the flowers are so expressive.

Sprout! Great blog posts!!!
I wanted to go to this very badly but it didn't work out :-(

I'm so glad you blogged it - and also even more disappointed that I missed it. It looks like everyone did fantastic work.

Too bad, you missed a good show. But I'm sure there will be a next year!
