It may be the middle of winter outside, but step into the Richards Memorial Library in February for a spring-time feel during the Art in Bloom event on Feb 22.

Art in Bloom seeks to interpret art with a flower arrangement. The art to be interpreted will be Kira Seamon’s popular photography. She took an exciting trip to Peru and some of the photos will be interpreted with flowers. Seamon is known for her kaleidoscopic photography which looks like beautiful abstract art. She rounds off the display with her traditional photography of popular subjects such as landscapes and sunsets.

The library will feature a special hands-on floral arranging workshop where patrons can try their hand at interpreting Seamon’s art. There will be a veritable buffet of flowers to choose from, and art, scissors, flowers and vases will be provided. Participants will create beautiful arrangements that will be displayed around the library for a week afterward. Space is limited, so reserve a space today.

A twenty nine-time grant recipient from area Cultural Councils, Seamon is excited to make her solo museum debut in nearby Attleboro Arts Museum in their Community Gallery in February. She recently sold her art there at the Members’ Exhibit and is thrilled to have become a finalist for the 8 Visions Exhibit this summer. She is the 2019 Artist-In-Residence for the Town of Natick, Natick Center Cultural District, where she organized and ran a town-wide Art in Bloom event in November. Her work has been filmed by Westwood, Wellesley, Easton, Attleboro, Cambridge and Dedham Public TV, which also produced and aired a 1.5 hour documentary on her art.
