Essex Garden Club Presents “A Feast for the Senses”

SIGHT! COLOR! GLAMOUR! TASTE! NONSENSE!

These are the design inspirations for the floral arrangements at the Essex Garden Club’s Small Standard Flower show. This show takes place at the Essex Art Association at 10 North Main St., Essex, Conn., from Friday September 23 through Sunday September 25.

The show will include floral floor designs complementing paintings, functional table settings featuring arrangements of edible and fresh plant material, and creative designs focusing on glamorous eras. Traditional floral arrangements as well as creations made with a healthy dollop of whimsy will be displayed as well.   Open and free to the public, the show will also feature horticulture, children’s displays and container grown plants.

The location for this flower show, The Essex Art Association, is an Essex gem in it’s own right. Started, in 1946, as a non-profit organization for artists to display their work in a 2 room schoolhouse, the Art Association now proudly exhibits paintings, drawings and other media in it’s excellent exhibition space.  The Essex Art Association’s art displayed during the flower show will reflect “A Feast For the Senses” in a Juried Art Show and the location of the Art Association is steps from the heart of Essex for easy access to restaurants and shopping.

OPENING RECEPTION: FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 23, 6-8 p.m.

SATURDAY AND SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 24-25, 1-5 p.m.

FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC
