Art in Bloom

March 10th, 2004 by Adam

Art in Bloom, creative floral arrangements inspired by works in the current gallery exhibition, will be presented by the Ashland Garden Club March 11-13. The display can be seen during regular gallery hours, Monday – Saturday, noon – 5 p.m.; Wednesday until 8 p.m.

Members of the Ashland Garden Club have received numerous awards, and have enjoyed the opportunity to bring their creativity to the gallery.

The exhibition, Interwoven Traditions: Engaging a New York Artist with Oaxacan Artisans surveys 12 years of collaborative work between New York artist Ruth Hardinger and indigenous artisans in Oaxaca, Mexico. Hardinger says, “I am using my work as a place in which I can learn about and bring together differing cultures, traditions and histories in order to find a co-existence.”

Interwoven Traditions was organized in conjunction with the campus first-year experience, Understanding our Global Mosaic: Tools for Living in the 21st Century. The 2004 theme is Latin America.
