Shimmering Flowers: Nancy Lorenz’s Lacquer and Bronze Landscapes
June 1 – September 30 in the Center House Leonhardt Galleries
Opening reception: Friday, May 31, 5 - 7 p.m.
Berkshire Botanical Garden proudly presents the work of Nancy Lorenz in its ART/GARDEN exhibition Shimmering Flowers: Nancy Lorenz’s Lacquer and Bronze Landscapes on display through September 30 in the Leonhardt Galleries.
A New York City based artist, Nancy Lorenz incorporates techniques from traditional Asian crafts, drawing on her years spent living in Japan and a thirty-five-year career as a noted contemporary abstract painter. For Shimmering Flowers, Ms. Lorenz has created gilt and mother-of-pearl paintings that complement the Garden’s collection of flora and will also present table-top landscape vessels in cast bronze, creating a dialogue with the galleries and their surrounding gardens. Throughout the summer, these vessels will display arrangements created by a rotating group of talented floral designers whose interpretations of the art are reflected in unique displays of flowers and other natural materials. The opening reception on Friday, May 31 will be highlighted by a demonstration by NYC Japanese floral artist Kan Asakura.
Gallery hours: 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. Free with Garden admission.
Shimmering Flowers is made possible through the generous assistance of the Dorothea L Leonhardt Foundation, Inc. and Hugh Freund and Sandra Wijnberg.
