At a time when we are all in need of a breath of fresh air, this highly anticipated exhibition plans to open its doors on Monday, June 15, 2020. If the literal storefronts are still closed, the installation of this exhibition will be unveiled virtually.

At the time of this release, a VIP reception celebrating these acclaimed artists and their work is scheduled for Friday, July 10, 2020 from 5 to 7 PM. “Because we believe in the value of art and beauty at this time,” says the gallery, “it is with joy that we share this event with a wide audience.”

More from the organizers:

Because flowers are a universal experience of beauty and delight, the goal of this exhibition is to uplift the spirits through these intimate visual meditations of florals crafted at the highest level by the country’s greatest artists.

“The art of the flower is a language unto itself. No matter what your taste in art, there is no home or business that does not rejoice in their proclaiming joy to the viewer.” says Tim Newton.

This masterful collection is painted in the spirit of vibrancy, vitality and beauty as an offering to global community that is experiencing a global pandemic. The artists believe that, now more than ever, art is needed and valued. They believe that this subject matter – all flowers – will uplift because this artwork connects the viewer with the healing element of nature and the inspiring aspect of beauty.

“In challenging times, there are few things that comfort us like beauty. And there are few things in all of Creation as beautiful as flowers. This exhibition and sale by some of the finest interpreters of nature is not to be missed.” says Newton.
