‘Art in Bloom' exhibit this weekend at fine arts center

PORT ANGELES — “Art in Bloom,” a popup exhibit, will be on display for Mother’s Day from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday through Sunday.

The annual exhibit is at the Port Angeles Fine Arts Center, 1203 E. Lauridsen Blvd.

The exhibit features floral designs inspired by “Reimagining the Intersection of Art & Environment — Exploring Natural & Repurposed Materials,” which is the center’s current exhibit.

Gallery visitors will be able to enjoy original floral designs paired with the artwork that inspired them.

The designers will use flowers, greenery and other natural materials to create original arrangements in response to artwork in the exhibit.

The arrangements were designed by Port Angeles Garden Club members Pam Ehtee, Billie Fitch, Tina Cozzolino, Mary Lou Paulson and Linda Nutter.

The Flower Bar, a flower arranging workshop led by Ariel Zimman, is open from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday.

Ticket holders can try their hand at making their own floral arrangements.

Tickets are $40 per person, $35 for Fine Arts Center members and are available online at https://pafac.kindful.com/e/flower-bar-4.

Each ticket includes a vessel, flowers and greenery, all necessary tools and basic instruction for creating a floral arrangement to take home.

“We are excited for people to find various levels of inspiration during Art in Bloom,” said Rachel Storck, the center’s community engagement director. “From the exhibit artwork to the floral arrangements, we hope each person walks away with a sense of how art can come in many forms. And, of course, the inspiration that comes from hands-on opportunities like the Flower Bar, where you can try a new skill or discover creative crossover between different art practices.”
