Floral Design Demonstration
June 25 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
2:00 – 3:00pm Presentation, 3:00 – 3:30pm reception with light fare.
OMAA welcomes award winning floral designer Laura Lindop for Art in Bloom’s floral arranging demonstration set for Saturday, June 25 at 2:00. During her program she will draw upon her wealth of experience and expertise, which includes the many years of participating in the MFA’s Art in Bloom (2012 to 2020), and being National Garden Club Master Judge. She is a member of the Piscataqua Garden Club, and a senior associate of The Acton Garden Club in Massachusetts.
Titled The American ‘Art‘ of Arranging Floral Components with a Hint of European Trends, the program is geared toward anyone interested in exploring new ways of arranging. Ms. Lindop will share her particular areas of interest: creative designs and mechanics, and chat about her interpretation of David Von Schlegel’s Graphite on Paper. Ms. Lindop plans to complete five arrangements during the presentation, which will be raffled off to benefit the Museum at the conclusion of the event.**
Ms. Lindop explains, “When I’m arranging flowers I think about composition, color, form, and positive versus negative space as a painter or sculptor would do. All of these things evoke emotion in flowers, just as they do in Art.”
