Bloom Boom Boom! features new work, all influenced by the flower. From floral-inspired abstracts to botanical explosions of color to Laurie Meyer’s powerful hydrangea paintings, the gallery will be abloom. The group exhibition includes work by Charleston artists Laurie Meyer, Marissa Vogl, Nancy Hoerter, and Carrie Beth Waghorn, as well as Dorothy Shain, James Richards, and Stanley Bielen.
“I never tire of painting Mother Nature’s art,” Vogl says. “From pollination to survival, flowers are incredibly complex, and we often take them for granted. Their color, their light — it’s pure magic!”
Hoerter agrees. “I've always been drawn to the natural beauty of flowers and have used them as a primary subject for my work. Recently, I have enjoyed exploring new ways to introduce contemporary elements into my still lifes.
A flowerful opening reception will be held on Friday, March 2, from 5 to 8pm, coinciding with the Charleston Gallery Association Art Walk.
