JILL BRECKENRIDGE: More May Flowers

In her last show at our gallery, Jill offered flower drawing/paintings, in an interesting and unusual medium, and haiku poetry.

For her new show, the flower theme continues. Jill writes about this new work:

Live flowers speak to us through our eyes and noses. Although John Greenleaf Whittier wrote,"Beauty seen is never lost," flowers live for only a short time, and our memories of them fade.

I try to capture the beauty of flowers on canvas. Instead of vases to hold them, I use frames. This way, a single flower can live as long--even longer--than we do, and can continue to remind us about the extravagant beauty of creation.

Opening Reception - Friday, April 5th from 6p to 9p

Gallery Talk - Tuesday, April 9th beginning at 7p
