April Online Group Art Show: “Flower Power!”
While ”Flower Power” was a slogan used by Hippies opposing the Vietnam War in the 1960s and 70s America, we want to use it to celebrate Flowers & Art in our April online group art show.
Throughout history, humans have used flowers to communicate their emotions and to commemorate various occasions. Still-life paintings of wilting flowers were meant to capture the fleeting nature of human life. In France and England, the aristocrats covered their palaces with floral wallpaper.
Botanical illustrations brought art and science together dating this art practice to the 1st Century B.C. In the Victorian era, the Pre-Raphaelite artists filled their paintings with hidden botanical symbolism. And we shall not forget Vincent Van Gogh’s iconic sunflowers.
Flowers have a lot of other historical significance across the globe so to welcome the arrival of Spring our April online group art show celebrates flowers. We welcome artworks depicting Flowers from all mediums of visual art, except video/film.
