Garden art imitates garden life at Art in the Garden By Patrick Alan Coleman, Editor

The weather was just about perfect Saturday and Sunday to take in the sights and sounds of the Norwood Community Garden. While the experience of the garden on its own merits offers up a meditative, idyllic comfort as one strolls through the rows of maturing summer veggies, lingering amidst the leafy greens was made even more easy last weekend considering art had been added.

 

This year marked the fourth year of Arts Community Education (ACE) of Norwood’s annual summer art show. It also marked its third year in a garden and its second year in the Norwood Community Garden, specifically. It’s likely, however, that this was the first year the show had shared a stage with two unbelievably massive sunflowers. But the art was equal to the challenge, holding its own and even complementing the natural wonders.

 

Eight local artists, nearly half of whom are garden members, took to the plots to display a fine array of work in mediums as diverse as watercolors, oils, pastels, acrylics and pottery.Some of the art was tucked among the ripening produce-on-the-vine, some used the greenery as an ever-shifting breeze-blown backdrop to bold colors. All of it could easily draw visitors in for a closer look.


“Norwood’s Community Garden is growing incredibly, and plans to help ACE grow the West End Art Show in the future,” commented garden manager Lory Herndon, who was also torn between the sunflowers and the canvas flowers.

VanessaVaile's insight:

This bonus "daily sunflower" for #Mountainair's annual #SunflowerFestival includes a nod to community gardens and tomorrow's Garden Party.

Labor Day Sunflower Project to kick off on Labor Day

Labor Day Sunflower Project to kick off on Labor Day | Sunflowers | Scoop.it

The Labor Day Sunflower Project will once again transform the western edge of the Krutch Park extension into a floral paradise on Labor Day, Monday, September 2. The project will begin at 9:00 a.m. and end at 1:00 p.m. 

...Knoxville residents representing each city district [will] weave hundreds of harvested sunflowers into a circular design on a freestanding, 15x15’ chain-link substrate....[The] Labor Day Sunflower Project began in 2007 as a creative means of uniting a single neighborhood, but it has since grown to symbolize the unification of all of Knoxville’s disparate parts. Each sunflower signifies the reward of individual labors while the circle embodies the coordination of those efforts.

VanessaVaile's insight:

A fine choice for today's #SunflowerFestival. There's a message here we could all learn from.

Sea of sunflowers at Lincolnshire farm - Telegraph

Sea of sunflowers at Lincolnshire farm - Telegraph | Sunflowers | Scoop.it
Lost amongst a sea of sunflowers, Britain’s largest grower is expecting a bumper crop this year.

 

Nicholas Watts, 70, has six million sunflowers growing as far as the eye can see across 160 acres, with his entire crop expected to sell for around £80,000 when it is harvested this autumn. He is the owner of Vine House Farm, in Lincolnshire, and sells the seeds of the flowers as wild bird food. The farm is Britain’s biggest sunflower farm

For August 20, not just one "daily sunflower" for the Mountainair #SunflowerFestival but millions
