Flourish is an exhibition of artworks that feature floral and botanical artworks from across the country.
For the second year in a row, The d’Art Center is partnering with local garden clubs during the Historic Garden Week of Virginia. The Flourish Exhibition reception begins right after Norfolk’s Garden Tour during the Historic Garden Week of Virginia.
The 2023 Flourish Exhibition is in memory of Kathy Protogyrou, member of Harbor Front Garden Club, who loved beautiful flowers and botanicals. The reception will be a wonderful place for tour goers to end their day, and local Garden Club Members will create flower arrangements inspired by the artwork in the exhibition that will be revealed during the Flourish reception!Sponsored by the Protogyrou Family.
This is a juried exhibition, and it will be co-curated by gallery manager Amanda Bradley, and exhibition juror, Kay Hofler.
