Art in Bloom

NGC 2019 VOB Cover

All across our country, floral designers combine flowers and imagination to interpret fine art creating what is known as “Art in Bloom.” The designer’s creative expression often gives new meaning to the art piece for the viewing public.

It is difficult to photograph an art piece with its floral interpretation due to distractions in the background and often poor lighting. For this reason Art in Bloom entries for the "Vision of Beauty” Calendar are seldom accepted.

However, the Calendar Committee is pleased to share this outstanding design by Minal Akkad interpreting a sculpture, “Articulated Dragon.” The design is made entirely of plant material, handled with great imagination.

Plant material used: sago palm, fan palm, sea holly, scabiosa, aspidistra and harry lauder walking stick. Minal Akkad lives in Framingham, Ma. and is a Life Member of NGC.
