Orchid Spectacular

Thank You! Your rating has been saved.

Implementing a unique twist on its annual orchid show, Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden will pose many of its orchid collection as pieces of art and combine that presentation with the work of Louisiana-born collage artist Arless Day. The event called Art and Orchids, is a part of Orchid Spectacular.

An unending array of color, forms and shapes occur in the family known as orchidaceae, lending themselves uniquely to the creation of art in many media. That has been done by artists for centuries, but this year, during the Gardens annual Orchid Spectacular, the garden is taking full advantage of natures ability to create art. On display this winter are, fully framed, the best from the Gardens collection of more than 5,000 orchids. Its a living art display of some of the best orchids in the Southeast.

In addition, the Garden will bring to life the works of collage artist Arless Day in an exhibit called Landscapes to Life. Featuring enlargements of seven select pieces as well as original works, Landscapes to Life, will feature Days work that is part painting and part collage and take it one step further to introduce plants and other items to bring the work to life. Two of Days pieces will be displayed in the Orchid Conservatory along with living plants replicated in his works. Five pieces will similarly be display in the Visitor Pavilion along with his original paintings.
