Shimmering Flowers

"Shimmering Flowers," Nancy Lorenz’s lacquer and bronze landscapes, exhibited in the Center House Leonhardt Galleries from June 1, through Oct. 1, 2019.

See a collection of images from "Shimmering Flowers."

A New York City-based artist, Nancy Lorenz incorporates techniques from traditional Asian crafts, drawing on her years spent living in Japan and a 35-year career as a noted contemporary abstract painter.

For "Shimmering Flowers", Ms. Lorenz created gilt and mother-of-pearl paintings that complemented the Garden’s collection of flora. She also presented table-top landscape vessels in cast bronze, creating a dialogue with the galleries and their surrounding gardens. Throughout the summer, these vessels displayed 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, was highlighted by a demonstration by Japanese floral artist Kan Asakura. 

"Shimmering Flowers" is made possible through the generous assistance of the Dorothea L. Leonhardt Foundation, Inc. and Hugh Freund and Sandra Wijnberg.
