Why Go: The Art in Bloom is a joint collaboration between the Norwood Evening Garden Club and Norwood High School art students. This is the eighth annual event where club members create floral displays to interpret the work done by students in Drawing and Painting III and 2D Digital Design III classes in the historic George H. Morse House. This year, the students have interpreted a range of styles from realism to abstraction. The media varies from landscape images in the Fauvist style (bright, bold, unusual colors), to images based on microscopic cells, to self-portraits with unusual colors (a la VanGogh), to computer-generated images. Laurie Meade McGrory, Norwood Visual Arts Chair, has titled the exhibit “From Realism to Abstraction.” Refreshments will also be served throughout the event.
