A team of talented artists, designers and gardeners have been working to create vivid floral interpretations of selected works of art in the spring exhibitions. The results will be on view at the Agnes, adjacent to the artworks that inspired them, for just a few days in June. The big reveal takes place on the evening of 15 June at a Gala Art in Bloom Reception.
The floral displays will remain on view 16 to 18 June. Visit and vote for your favourite interpretation. The People’s Choice winner will be announced at 3 pm on 18 June in the Atrium.
Friendly and knowledgeable Community Docents will be available on Friday 16 June between 10 am–4 pm to answer questions about the exhibitions and flower arrangements on display.
Two flower-arranging demonstrations will be offered on the weekend. There is limited seating available, register today by calling the Agnes at (613) 533.2190 with your credit card or drop in during gallery hours with cash, cheque or debit.
