ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
It has been a long, cold winter and we deserve flowers-lots of flowers. Luckily for you, we have just what you need to get you through the ice and snow. Fabulous Florals & Fine Arts pairs selected original artwork with floral arrangements. The artwork is selected based on its original concept and professional appearance, but the first consideration is this; will it pose a challenge to a floral designer?
After the artwork has been selected, it is randomly paired with a local florist. The florist then is given the task of interpreting the artwork with a floral arrangement. Some interpretations are literal, some are loose, all are one-of-a-kind fabulous!
The warmth is on its way, and so are the flowers!

Message from Curator Rose Dolan Neill
It’s been a challenging year, and like so many other events and exhibits, we’ve had to reimagine what Fabulous Florals looks like for this season. Since we all can’t be in the same space, ooo-ing and ahhh-ing over the art and enjoying the flowers, we’ll have to imagine the warm and inviting James W Hansen Gallery overflowing with people and color and fragrances.
We know that times have been tough financially for many people and small businesses and that flowers can be very expensive. You’ll notice in this exhibit that some of the images are sketches or mock ups of floral designs. We wanted to be as inclusive as possible for this year’s exhibit, and some of our designers came up with some very imaginative ways to express themselves. We’ve also incorporated images of past Fabulous Florals exhibits as an added bonus.
