A celebration of beauty and growth, Beauty in Bloom features floral paintings by local artists Danielle Paré and Kate Ryckman.
Rich with symbolism, flowers represent so many feelings, like hope, love, patience, fragility, possibility, and offer an endless range of emotions to explore within one subject. In this new, uplifting series of work, Danielle and Kate aim to inspire a sense of joy and playfulness that they find in flowers.
Full of rich, thin layers of paint, drips and bold brushstrokes, both Danielle and Kate bring to life the endlessly expressive nature of
Beauty in Bloom.
