New to the gallery

Local artist,  Lilith Dorr will have an exhibit entitled, “The Seven Sisters” on display through June 4th.

Join us for the Opening Reception on Saturday, May 21st from 5-7pm.

This sculptural body of work, rich in symbolic detail and gorgeous textiles, was created in homage to the artist’s female ancestors and also serves as a platform for celebrating the positive aspects of the Feminine.

You really have to see the artwork to get the full effect. Each of the pieces began with a door purchased from Habitat for Humanity. It is upon this solid foundation that Lilith secured the many intricate elements that provide the “sisters” with their own unique personalities. Family heirlooms and photographs are incorporated into each ancestor.

The beginning…

Welcome to the Art In Bloom blog. Today the name for my new business finally popped into my head and when it did, I felt instant relief. The details have been falling into place for months now but the name was an important piece that I’d been missing. This name suits the business perfectly as it will be a specialty florist in an art gallery setting. “Art in bloom” symbolizes the fresh flowers available, the designs created from them and the wide variety of original works by local artists. The name also speaks of the teaching I plan to conduct from the boutique gallery space. Classes in fine art and floral design will begin in the fall for all ages.

Coming soon…details about the business location on Main St. in downtown Brighton.
