We challenged 17 artists to bring fresh material to fascinate our collectors, friends, and flower-lovers alike. The subject of florals is endlessly fascinating and we hope you join us for a show you won’t soon forget–including artists Kaetlyn Able, floral designer Katie Bennett, Jenny Booth, Tammy Callens, Mike Clark, poet Michael Earl Craig, Steve Degenhart, Jennifer Eli French, Carol Guzman, Audrey Hall, Morgan Irons, Amber Jean, Dominique Paulus, Ben Pease, Kevin Red Star, Judd Thompson, fashion designer Bethany Yellowtail – as well as a rare and meaningful display of still lifes by renowned painter of the American West, Joseph Henry Sharp (1859–1953).
