The Karl Drerup Art Gallery in PSU’s D & M Building hosted a Standard Flower Show June 23. The Ashland Garden Club sponsored the show, which attracted nearly 140 entries from eight communities, including Plymouth, Bristol and Ashland. Awards were given in design, horticulture, merit, horticultural excellence and sweepstakes; plus an educational award and a youth award.
The entries were varied, from hanging designs, table designs, illuminaries, decorated eye masks, and pedestal designs, as well as horticulture specimens, dish gardens, container pots and exhibition arrangements around the theme of “Cirque du Soleil.” The show‘s top entries will compete at a larger event later this year at the Boston Museum of Fine Art. This is the fourth time PSU has hosted the annual Standard Flower Show.
