Flowers & Gardens Juried Show

We were thrilled to have over 150 entries for our second annual Flowers & Gardens Show.  The entries were from 85 artists from all over the United States, including Washington, New Mexico, Colorado, and many Central, Northeast, and Southern states.

77 works of art were selected for the show by jurors Linda Eddins, Janie Johnson, and Susan Jones. This is a strong show of both regional and national talent.

Be sure to join us for the Opening Reception on August 5, from 6 to 9:30 pm during First Friday. 

While you are at the gallery, please vote for "People's Choice".  The voting will take place throughout the month until the end of the show on August 27.

A Few Words

with Kelly Blackington

When did you realize you loved art and wanted to be an artist? 
When I was in 2nd grade I entered a children’s art contest at the local gift shop.  I won first prize, which was a giant stuffed Easter Bunny that I was thrilled to schlepp on the bus to school for “show and tell”. 
What is your favorite way to get your creative mojo flowing? 
I don’t know where I heard this, but when you are in a rut it is the best time to paint.  When I have tried this it has worked for me. I try and practice techniques and not get so focused on creativity…and then it usually comes.  

Which work of yours is your favorite?
I think that my favorite is always the most recent one that I painted and signed.  I don’t sign them if I don’t like them. And I have a pile of paintings unsigned!

Share something that few people know about you:I love art, but I also have a passion for interior design. I worked as a Kitchen and Bath Designer for over 10 years and still enjoy a career in the industry.
