Beyond the Bouquet

Categories: Sturt Haaga Gallery

January 22 – April 22, 2018

For millennia, people have brought plants and flowers indoors for their pleasure, tradition and even health. When flowers are removed from their natural surroundings and repurposed into bouquets and flower arrangements, gardening evolves beyond a practical skill into the realm of art-making. Beyond the Bouquet highlights this art-making tradition as it explores the newest trends.

In this exhibition, both local and international artists experiment with concepts of nature, two and three-dimensional creations, an “alternative concept of beauty” and the blurred line between art and craft using a wide variety of media.

Featured artists include: Alison Franchi, Justina Freel, Felisa Funes, Cherrie Hoa Mai, Karen Kimmel, Kaz Yokou Kitajima, Rebecca Louise Law, Britton Neubacher, Helen Rae, Natalia Stuyk, Joy Taylor and Tiffanie Turner

Beyond the Bouquet is funded in part by Heather and Paul Haaga.


The gallery is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily. Free with admission.

For Shame, Tiffanie Turner
