See Art in Full Bloom at Annmarie Garden this Weekend

With works of art as their inspiration, 35 floral designers from the region worked in their own medium – flowers – to create their own amazing works of art.

Their arrangements will be on display this weekend, July 14-16, in Art Blooms at Annmarie Sculpture Garden and Arts Center in Dowell. Each floral designer in the show was assigned a work of art in the Art Center’s Main Gallery or Mezzanine Gallery and asked to create an arrangement inspired by that work of art. This is Art Bloom’s eighth year, and it is co-hosted by the Calvert Garden Club and Ann’s Circle of Annmarie Garden.

Art Blooms will be open to the public from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, July 15, and Sunday, July 16. Admission is free.

Art Blooms opens with a Gala Reception on Friday, July 14, from 7 to 10 p.m. The gala features live music, food, and a silent auction. Cost is $70 each for non-members and $60 each for Annmarie and Calvert Garden Club members. For more information on the gala or to purchase tickets visit
