The Wallflowers exhibit will be enhanced by a live flower show beginning at noon Friday at Fuller Lodge.
The exhibit is like a garden in which the flowers never wilt, there are no weeds and the plants are not restricted by a climate zone. “Wallflowers” the works of 60 artists fill the gallery with bursts of color. In floral terms, there are five dozen artists presenting eight dozen blossoms. Not every blossom is a flower but they all fall within the theme of “Wallflowers.” Several artists from the Pastel Society of New Mexico entered the show. Other media represented include watercolor, acrylic, colcha (fabric), clay, wood, glass, photography, jewelry and even an automaton called “Cranky Flowers.”
Last week a hummingbird flew into the gallery and staff wondered if it was attracted by all the color.
Once again, the physical space of the gallery has been adapted to host the theme, with white garden trellises to support the floral profusion. It’s a celebration of summer, a veritable oasis amidst our New Mexico drought.
Also on Friday, the N.M. District II Judges Council is hosting a flowers show at the lodge to compliment the exhibit.
A small standard flower show has three divisions.
Division 1 — Horticulture
Division 2 — Design
