Exhibit to showcase talents of floral designers, artists

By GARDEN CLUB - | Feb 25, 2021

PHOTO PROVIDED Floral designer and arranger Harriet Pattison teamed up with artist Carol Rosenberg on a piece for “Art in Bloom.”

The “Art in Bloom” biennial event will return to the Sanibel Public Library on March 9 from noon to 5 p.m., March 10 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and March 11 from 9 a.m. to noon.

Shell Islands Garden Club members and Sanibel-Captiva Art League artists collaborated to produce the exhibit, which features innovative floral design and art. The pieces will be available for viewing in two areas of the library upstairs.

“The show has generated such positive vibes from library patrons in the past. This will be the fifth time the garden club has presented Art in Bloom,” SIGC Vice President Gwenda Hiett-Clements said. “Fifteen floral designers are matched with 15 artists. The resulting flower arrangements are interpretations of the artists’ paintings. The results are unbelievably creative and works of art in themselves.”
