Flower Show 2021 Announcement


Warning: Use of undefined constant addtofacebook - assumed 'addtofacebook' (this will throw an Error in a future version of PHP) in /home/kerrystp/public_html/wp-content/themes/ArtsMuseum/category.php on line 14

After much consideration, the lingering impact of the Coronavirus has forced organizers to cancel the Attleboro Arts Museum’s 2021 Flower Show.  Despite a genuine effort to re-imagine the layout, attractions, programs and flow of guests, organizers believe that a truly safe Flower Show in March 2021 is not achievable.  

The Flower Show, an annual 4-day/1-night fundraising event that brought close to 2500 guests to the AAM in 2019, is a community favorite.  Large crowds gather to take in lush garden installations, meet in the Show’s café, come face-to-face with live animals, listen to musical performances and more.  In 2020, the Show’s 29th consecutive year, doors were about to open to the public when the Coronavirus took hold, and the Museum was forced to close for over three months.  

However, a popular component of the Flower Show can still safely be presented – its natured-themed art exhibition. The display of original art, this year entitled “Back to Nature,” will showcase work in a range of disciplines that relate to the natural world.  Along with the “Back to Nature” exhibition, the Museum’s gift shop will expand, and the organization’s popular “extraordinary” raffles will be offered. These attractions will not be called the “Flower Show” – they’ll be treated as an AAM exhibition with select special features. “Back to Nature” will be on view from March 6th – 19th, 2021. Artists can view the full prospectus here.

Organizers are hopeful that the complete Flower Show, and all that makes it a highlight of the year, will bloom again in 2022.

An In-gallery Exhibition of Nature-themed Artwork at the Attleboro Arts Museum

  • Delivery of art: February 13th, 16th, 17th, 18th and 19th, 2021
  • Exhibition: March 4th – 19th, 2021

After much consideration, the lingering impact of the Coronavirus has forced organizers to cancel the Attleboro Arts Museum’s 2021 Flower Show.  Despite a genuine effort to re-imagine the layout, attractions, programs and flow of guests, organizers believe that a truly safe Flower Show in March 2021 is not achievable.  

However, a popular component of the Flower Show can still safely be presented – its natured-themed art exhibition. The meandering display of original art, this year entitled “Back to Nature,” will showcase 1 or 2 works from each artist.  All pieces must represent the natural world: either floral, landscape, underwater, weather, wildlife, extinct species, insects, etc.  All mediums can be submitted and this year every nature-themed piece that meets the guidelines listed below will be accepted.  Submissions will not be juried for entry.  Additionally, the length of the exhibition will be extended this year.  “Back to Nature” will be on view for twelve days (as opposed to four). “People’s Choice” prizes will be awarded after the Show has concluded. Along with the “Back to Nature” exhibition, the Museum’s gift shop will expand, and the organization’s popular “extraordinary” raffles will be offered.  

Organizers are hopeful that the complete Flower Show, and all that makes it a highlight of the year, will bloom again in 2022.

Juror’s Statement

I am honored to be the juror for the current Members’ show up now through January 29th, 2021. AAM is a force of nature, a master of the dark and light, and all in-between. This sums up the show as a whole, the works synthesize cultures and the living ‘now’ experiences to create works of strength, vision, and beauty. AAM operates as a source of social connection and well-being for creatives. We need this – a safe and welcoming place to share our narratives of resilience, healing, solidarity, and freedom. This year (unlike others thus far) symbolizes ‘hope’ the frailness in our emotions, the warm and inviting memories in our heads, the damages left in our hearts but ultimately an optimistic outlook for ourselves and our beloved AAM. Please join me in congratulating, enjoying, and purchasing the beauties of the show. Art is what we call life, all that is love and more.

– Jennifer Jean Okumura

An important Attleboro Arts Museum member benefit is the opportunity to annually exhibit original artwork in the Museum’s Ottmar Gallery. In the spirit of our tagline – Arts for Everyone – all member work that meets the exhibition guidelines is accepted into this exhibition. Guest Juror Jennifer Jean Okumura has reviewed all of the submissions and selected award winners.

_____________________________________________________________________________

Juror Jennifer Jean Okumura has a strong comprehensive knowledge of both modern and contemporary art markets with diverse and extensive fine art experiences such as Operations Manager, Fine Art Consultant, Design Associate, and Adjunct Educator at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. She currently sits on the board as President and founding Exhibition Chair for National Association of Women Artists, Inc., MA chapter.

As a practicing artist, Jennifer’s use of color and creative texture lend harmoniously from the natural world and her heritage of both Eastern and Western influences. She derives inspiration for her oil paintings of a wide variety of subjects, which she hopes conveys a sense of motion and evokes a wide range of emotions.
