Flowers are one of the most enduring and beloved subjects in the painting world, but what’s their attraction? As part of the Glen Arbor Arts Center’s “In Bloom” exhibition, two local painters who have created large bodies of work based on flowers will explore the attractions at the next “Talk About Art.,” Sunday April 15, 2 pm at the GAAC, 6031 S. Lake St., Glen Arbor.

GAAC Gallery Manager Sarah Bearup-Neal will talk with “In Bloom” exhibitors Lauren Everett Finn of Honor, and Kasson Township resident Carol C. Spaulding about their attraction to flowers. Finn brings to “In Bloom” work from her “100 Bouquets” series, a self-assigned project to depict flowers – both real and imaginary – in acrylic paint, oil stick, pencil and a range of other media. Spaulding draws inspiration from her large, home flower garden. For this painter, flowers provide a ready subject and a chance to explore the wide range of color and shape they naturally offer.

“Talk About Art” is free and open to the public. “In Bloom,” an exhibition of floral paintings and sculpture, continues through May 17. The GAAC is open Monday through Friday 9 a.m. – 2 p.m., and noon – 4 p.m. on Sundays. For more information, please call 231/334-6112.
