It may be the middle of winter outside, but step into the Richards Memorial Library in February for a Spring-time feel during our Art in Bloom event on Feb 22nd!
Art in Bloom seeks to 'interpret" art with a flower arrangement and the art to be interpreted will be Kira Seamon's popular photography. She took an exciting, once-in-a-lifetime trip to Peru and we will interpret some of these fascinating vibrant photos with flowers. Kira also is known for her kaleidoscopic photography which looks like beautiful abstract art. She rounds off the display with her traditional photography of popular subjects such as landscapes and sunsets.
We are featuring a special hands-on floral arranging workshop on Saturday, February 22nd, where patrons can try their hand at interpreting Kira's art! We will have a veritable buffet of flowers to choose from, impressing everyone with both quantity and quality of blooms. Kira provides the art, scissors, flowers and vases and we will create beautiful arrangements that will be displayed around the library for a week afterwards, allowing many more patrons to enjoy a bit of Springtime!
