Art in Bloom

10th Annual Art in Bloom Celebrated at the Black Mountain Center for the Arts

The Black Mountain Center for the Arts is happy to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Art in Bloom, a flower-filled annual event that place on June 9-11, and includes a Gala Preview Party (June 9 at 6 pm $50) with catered buffet dinner, a gallery display of spectacular Ikebana and Western floral designs, a two-day Cottage Garden Tour (June 10 and 11 from 10 am-4 pm $20), plein air painters in the gardens, followed by a display of their works (June 14-July 8).

It all begins in early May with artwork selected from regional galleries specifically for Art in Bloom. Once the art is hung, 20 floral designers, some of whom are members of the Ikebana (the Japanese art of floral arranging) Society are matched with one of the works of art. These works are on display in the Upper Gallery May 3 through June 8. The Upper Gallery is free and open to the public Monday through Friday from 10am to 5pm.

The event really gains momentum on the morning of June 9 when the floral designers come to create their flower arrangements, each capturing what they see as the essence of the artwork they are interpreting, resulting in a magnificent display.

Once the floral arrangements are complete, the Arts Center hosts the Gala Preview Party on June 9 at 6pm to celebrate the talented floral designers and their works and to give ticket holders the first glimpse of the arrangements when they are their freshest. Included in the $50 ticket price will be catered buffet dinner, free wine and beer, and special flavors of Ultimate Ice Cream for dessert. This year’s honorary chairs are Judy Fore, Terri Todd and Sally Robinson the three women who spearheaded the event 10 years ago.

On June 10 and 11 guests are invited to view the gallery filled with floral designs ($5), and explore Black Mountain with a Cottage Garden Tour (10 a.m. to 4 p.m., $20). Each garden will have plein air painters working to capture the garden’s beauty on canvas. Beginning June 14 the plein air art works replace the floral designs in the gallery and are on display through July 8.
