Explanation for Petals & Palettes: The designer may be either an experienced or novice flower arranger who will interpret, with his or her own vision, one of the artworks submitted by a local artist. The hope is that an ideal fusion of talent to object will captivate the visitors who come to view the inspiring combination of art and flowers. Foe Petals and Palettes, more than most flower arrangements, the container plays an integral part, almost like a stage setting that works with the plant material to portray the story. When done successfully, the result is a double vision: namely, that of the artist who created the art object and the arranger who attempts to accentuate what the artist has created.

Note chosen artworks must be brought to the Atkinson Resort and Country Club Thursday, March 23, 2017 3 – 7pm or Friday, March 24, 2017 8 – 10 am and must be removed promptly at 5 pm on Saturday, March 25, 2017.
