This year at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts Art in Bloom event, I not only went to a demo, but also took a workshop, so I had only a minimal amount of time to go through the galleries and because of that this post is not going to be as comprehensive as last year's - but I hope you'll still enjoy!
First picture above -
"Chicago" - New Meadows Garden Club of Topsfield, Topsfield MA
Below, not a piece with an artwork, but a display in the cafe, by Floral Jewels, Boxford MA.
"Young Sheperdess" - Belmont Garden Club, Belmont MA
"Peacock" - Andover Garden Club, Andover MA
"Reclining Nude" - Acton Garden Club, Acton MA
'Venus" - Chicatabot Garden Club, Dover MA
"Venus" - love the black lotus pods tucked for depth and texture!
"Falling Gladiator" - Wellesley Garden Study Club, Wellesley MA
I like that this arrangement is not a literal interpretation of the gladiator - "Oh look, there's his bent arm, here's his leg." It's more of a setting for him. And the best part is the use of, what else - gladiolas! The flower with the sword shaped leaves, named for gladiators. Also, the sword shaped leaves from sanseveiria are a great reference to the gladiator's job. :-)
"Fruit and Jug" - Country Garden Club of Weston, Weston MA
This is what I would call a more literal interpretation, but it's a great one!
"Aristide Bruant in His Cabaret" - Spade and Trowel Garden Club, Andover MA
Twig of Boston MA.
"The Rich Soil Down There" - Evening Garden Club of Plymouth, Plymouth MA
This might be my favorite out of the works I managed to see in my quick trip around a few parts of the museum. How simple, how graphic. Plates, flowers, stand.
Sorry I didn't have time to bring you more sights from the Museum of Fine Arts this year, but it's just as well, look how long it took for me to get this post up!
