Flower Power: Pottery & Plants

Temporary Exhibition, March 12 - July 2, 2016.

Within the context of this show, the term Flower Power is not a reference to the movement or ideology of the late 1960s and early 1970s. Here, Flower Power is a visual appreciation of the visceral and aesthetic power of pottery and plants. Individually, pottery, flowers, and plants have the power to affect our thoughts and feelings. When combined, that power is sometimes intensified, perhaps because of the symbiotic relationship between earth and nature.
