The gallery is filled with flowers. It's what I imagine heaven must be like. There are Calla Lilies, Pitcher Pants, Freesias, Natives, Orchids, Pansies and a Cactus for good measure. It's hard not to be happy when you step into the gallery to view this exhibition. Flowers just bring on smiles and I don't know about you but when I look at them, they just make me feel good and I love having them around.
It's not surprising that the gallery would eventually be inspired to have an exhibition based on the flowers from ELEGANT BLOOMS FLOWER BOUTIQUE next door. Coco and I visit Amy and Pene everyday and we always buy a vase of flowers to go with a new exhibition. The works in this exhibition are mostly the result of drawing and painting workshops held in the gallery last year with a few extra works by artists well accustomed to flower painting including Jill Orr, John Earle and Andrew Finnie.
There is one final week left of ELEGANT BLOOMS in the gallery, it finishes on Saturday 2 April at 2pm.
