In May, two important local institutions, the ARTery Gallery and the Milford Garden Club, will once again come together to present a unique collaboration of artistic skills May 11 to June 5, at the ARTery Gallery in Milford.
Thirteen selected works from ARTery members will be featured side-by-side with an artistic interpretation by Garden Club members.
To accomplish this, the floral arrangers will react to what they feel and see while viewing the art. They will take artistic elements in the selected works such as shapes, colors, patterns, mood or the subject itself and intuitively create their own stylistic representation using flowers, branches, found pieces and a varied assortment of horticultural inventions.
The ARTery Gallery, located in historic Forest Hall, is a cooperatively owned and operated fine art gallery, serving the regional artists and art lovers since 1996. Each month, the gallery presents a wide variety of work from new and established artists ranging from traditional oil, watercolor, and photography to sculpture, jewelry, textiles, pottery and collage.
The Milford Garden Club has served the area for more than 85 years. It’s many contributions include its annual flower show, its beautification program of three public gardens and other locations throughout town, its community garden where food is grown for the local Ecumenical Food Pantry, a scholarship program, and its historical role in the preservation of the unique history and tradition of the Milford Rose.
A wine and cheese reception will be held for the public on Saturday, May 13, from 5 to 8 p.m.
The Artery Gallery is located at 210 Broad Street, Milford. (570) 409-1234.
The gallery is open daily: Thursday through Monday 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
