“A bit of advice, don't copy nature too closely. Art is an abstraction; as you dream amid nature, extrapolate art from it, and concentrate on what you will create as a result.”
                                                                                                                              ––  Paul Gauguin

Theme and Selection:

Our “Flowers, Plants & Gardens” curators are looking for art work that honors and reflects the beauty and calm dignity of nature as it is expressed in flowers and plants.  Artists and photographers throughout history have created some of their most beautiful, memorable works of art through their appreciations of inspiring flowers, plants, and gardens that symbolize continual rebirth, fresh beginnings, fragile persistence, and alluring symmetry against many odds.  Regardless of art form, when an artist becomes “blocked,” nature frequently offers him or her a new spiritual foundation and motivation.  Be it a single flower, a garden in full aromatic bloom, or a “shy” plant on a window sill, there is no mistaking the awesome complexity of the planet’s precious vegetation.  This abundance of flowers and greenery inspires and challenges the creative mind to redefine and/or simply glorify their splendor.   We encourage all artists who feel a commonality with this theme to submit to us for final consideration your creative visions.
