Opening Reception — Shimmering Flowers: Nancy Lorenz’s Lacquer and Bronze Landscapes

May 31, 2019 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm

Berkshire Botanical Garden's Leonhardt Galleries

Berkshire Botanical Garden warmly welcomes Nancy Lorenz on Friday, May 31, 5 - 7 p.m. for an opening reception of its ART/GARDEN exhibition Shimmering Flowers: Nancy Lorenz’s Lacquer and Bronze Landscapes. The reception will include a demonstration presented by floral designer and ikebana master Kan Asakura.  

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.

Gallery hours June 1 - September 30:  Daily, 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.
