Portraits of the Garden: The Art of Flowers

The beauty of flowers can’t be denied.  It’s one of the reasons that being a Los Angeles wholesale rose provider is such a pleasure.  We get to be surrounded by that beauty throughout the day.  Flowers and gardens have been a source of inspiration for many artists over the years as well, and the Descanso Gardens are putting paintings right alongside their floral inspirations in their public exhibition titled Portraits of the Garden.

Portraits of the Garden builds on the thematic idea of artists interpreting the natural world around them in new and exciting ways.  For the exhibition, the Descanso Gardens commissioned new works by contemporary artists like Linda Hudson, Astrid Preston, & Steve Roden.  Some of these works were even created using actual plant materials that appear on the gallery’s walls.  The Gardens also invited submissions from other artists that have been inspired by the gardens.  Vetted by a panel of renowned judges, 150 works were selected that express a wide variety of individual artist’s takes on the familiar landscapes.

The Southern California community is also getting involved and has been encouraged to submit their own photos of Descanso Gardens to be displayed in a video installation in the gallery and online.  The exhibition is currently open and will run through March 30th.

Accredited by the American Association of Museums, the Descanso Gardens sees thousands of annual visitors and is a self-declared “urban retreat of year-round natural beauty, internationally renowned botanical collections and spectacular seasonal horticultural gardens.    Located in Flintridge, it is certainly one of the best places to see gorgeous floral displays in Southern California.
