Green Fingers Garden Club Presents ‘Preview of Spring’
Green Fingers Garden Club will present its “Preview of Spring 2018: The Color of Light,” Friday, March 2 from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturday, March 3 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The event takes place at Christ Church Parish Hall, 254 East Putnam Ave. and it is free to the public.
Presented every three years, Preview of Spring will feature a showcase of floral and horticultural design, photography, botanical arts, and educational exhibits. Judges and exhibitors will participate from all over the country.
The title “The Color of Light” is inspired by the question, “What is Color?” The answer to this question is portrayed through the variety of inspiring, unique exhibits. The show will highlight the beauty of all botanical life and its diverse expression as ‘color’ in the natural world.
Exhibits will appeal to nearly every interest. Floral Design classes will include creations inspired by themes such as fireworks, reflective, and moonlight. The Horticultural division will showcase an array of plants. Lovers of fine art photography will be treated to six categories of works, to include the interpretation of color, texture, pattern and seascapes.
The Botanical Arts division will feature “Jewelry” created out of botanical materials, inspired by Jewels of the Nile and the Indian Festival of Lights. On display will also be a botanical architectural design inspired by “Paris: The City of Light.”
In keeping with the club’s mission, club members will also present their own Conservation and Education exhibits.
Raffle tickets available at the show will offer winners a Princess Dogwood Tree, quarterly delivery of seasonal flowers by McArdle’s Florist, and a Greenwich Townscape by Leonard Weber. A boutique will sell an assortment of items including planted antique gardening items.
The show is the major fundraiser of the club. Proceeds are used to further Green Finger’s long-term support of community civic projects and institutions. Proceeds raised from the event will be used to fund a natives-based teaching garden and landscaping at the new Town of Greenwich Byram Pool in Byram Shore Park.
