Continuing our exploration of choice flowers is the art show Choix Fleurs:  Before the Temple of Flora Dec 20—March 20, 2019.  Choix Fleurs follows the wonder of last year’s roses into the gardens of many different types of flowers.

 

Galaudet Gallery co-owner Vicki Milewski defines Choix Fleurs, “After learning from Pierre Redoute last year and other fantastic botanical artists who worked with roses we are now displaying different flowers from lilacs to sweet pea blossoms.  The subtitle of Before the Temple of Flora means this is a show before we display the flowers from the Temple of Flora which is where our sequencing for these floral shows is leading.”

 

There are more Redoute works in flowers other than roses and works by Marc Chagall and Ehret among others.  “Studying these masters has humbled my work with floral painting and brought a new perspective to my eye when looking at flowers,” Vicki continues.

 

Vicki’s brother Mike Milewski points out, “By bringing in more botanicals and some pomologicals we also bring more experiences with  the Temple of Flora ethos.  We also like to work with progressions and sequences in order to bring more light to the evolution of art.”
