Spring comes to the Emporium

By Susan Gartner

The opening reception for the Flower Power Group Art Show took place Saturday night, January 8, at the Emporium. While it was wintry weather with temps in the teens outside, inside the coffeehouse it was sunny and Spring-like with flowers everywhere.

The collection includes flower-themed paintings, embroidery, quilts, and photographs. Also included were felt flowers from the Flower Power Dayton Street Project that took place last spring. Many of the exhibiting artists took part in last year's project by creating realistic and fanciful flowers that were then attached to benches, railings, sign posts, telephone poles, trees, and trellises. For this exhibit, some of the flower creations were recycled and given new life in vases and on coffeehouse chairs

The exhibit will be up for the month of January. Stop by and bask in the warm glow of Spring.
