Art in Bloom 2012

Rhododendron in Bloom

Every June at the Black Mountain Center for the Arts, there’s a wonderful weekend of events called “Art in Bloom”, which I’ve had the pleasure of photographing for the last four years. A celebration of art and flowers, floral artists create arrangements to complement artworks in a variety of media. Events include a Gala Preview Party and a self-guided tour of local gardens.

Right now I’m putting together the 2012 Art in Bloom book, which shows the complete exhibit including all the floral arrangements, with comments by the floral designers. Also included are photos from the Gala and the Garden Tour. The book will be available to purchase at the BMCA sometime in August. All proceeds from the book benefit the BMCA.

While I’m photographing, I always capture some choice close-up shots of the flowers. I love to fill the entire frame with the flowers, cropping out all the background– they are so amazingly beautiful and never fail to make me marvel! These don’t all make it into the book.  Here is a slideshow of a few of my favorites from this year’s event:
