April showers bring May flowers and what do Mayflowers bring? Pilgrims! *ba dum tsh* But seriously folks, May also brings to Ft. Worth a one day only collaboration between the Fort Worth Garden Club and the Amon Carter Museum of American Art. The event, titled Fine Art and Flowers, features 24 floral arrangements created by members of the Fort Worth Garden Club. Club members have put together unique arrangements inspired by works of art from the Amon Carter's extensive and varied permanent collection. The arrangements will be on display alongside their fine art counterparts on the Saturday before Mother's Day, May 10th. The flowery affair is sure to kick off the weekend's Mother's Day festivities with class. After all, what better way to show our mothers our gratitude and appreciatioin than with a bountiful bouquet? The theme of this exhibition is a popular springtime trend that links the visual arts with the art of floral arrangement and explores the ways that different mediums of expression can complement and inspire each other. As anyone who has experience with cut flowers knows, theirs is a transient beauty so the show will only be open for one day and one day only, Saturday May 10th from 10 to 5. The Amon Carter is always free to the public so moms and gardeners alike come check it out!
