About the Book
"Evocative still lifes, precise botanical studies, lush floral landscapes, extreme close ups - whatever your relationship with florals, share your perspective in the Art in Bloom exhibit at CrazyLake Art Gallery."
That is the directive given to the artists for the exhibit documented in this catalog. True to their reputation for finding interesting and unusual ways of expressing a theme, the artists in this exhibit have helped to compile a collection of art that depicts many different ways of relating to the natural world. From Jeanne Zeigler's deceased bee on a flower, to Timothy Carter-East's designs constructed with pressed botanicals, to Shawn Newton's beautifully detailed flowers composed of tiny bits of glass, these artists demonstrate that they view the natural world with wonder, with gratitude, and with a sense of humor.
