Splendora Gardens is proud to present:
“THE FLOWER SHOW @ Splendora Gardens”
(an open call, every artist gets in art show about Flowers)

26041 Midline Road, Cleveland, TX 77328
March 25th, 2017 – April 23rd, 2017
Through their quiet beauty and grave symbolism, flowers continually capture the imagination and inspire the passions of artists. Many delight in the delicacy of petals illuminated by a late spring sun, animated by a gentle wind. The complex play of light, color, value, and texture compel the brush and the pen, the lyric and the tone. Others render flowers and gardens, and the myriad elements that complete them, as metaphors for the most profound aspects of human existence. They emerge out of the verdant mire to denote rebirth, fertility, peace, prosperity, purity, and as Juan Ferret notes in “The Power of Flowers,” spiritual liberation from earthly impulses.
Flowers give voice to our feelings. They adorn our most sacred ceremonies and grace our bodies in life’s important moments. They serve as gifts to our closest loved ones and those we wish to draw closer, and memorials to those we will miss. They embellish the commonplace, bringing joy to families on city windowsills and in country planters. And while coloring our days with vibrant and subtle hues, flowers also nourish new life; the flower’s highest value lies in its interactions in the complex of nature. It is a node, a point of collection, of both beauty and purpose. The dynamic essence of an organism, the flower reaches towards the sun as a lofty realization of its inverse, the root. And as one instant within a larger environment, whether garden or wilderness, it provides sustenance to other organisms. The garden in turn provides sanctuary from the commotion of life. Restful meditation or deep contemplation await those willing to release themselves into the order and elation of the garden, however modest. Although an invention, a vibrant balance of science and aesthetics, the garden symbolizes paradise, creation, and the perfection of nature.
Splendora Gardens is pleased to invite artists of all kinds to submit works to be exhibited, presented, or performed at “The Flower Show.” Whichever discipline you work within, no matter your level of “achievement,” or age, we are calling for works that express your unique interpretation of the theme of “flowers” and/or “gardens.” There will be no juror; every piece submitted will be shown. You are welcome to send visual art, read original poetry or prose, perform a song, or anything else for that matter. You can exhibit or perform works you’ve already created or make something new.
Scheduled visual artists (so far): James Surls, Charmaine Locke, Daniel Johnston, The Wheeler Bro’s, Ruby Surls, Alton Dulaney, and you…

• All artists can submit one piece each ready to hang or display. (Not to exceed 36” in any direction). Unframed works are ok and will be tacked to the wall.
