Famed impressionist Claude Monet once said, ?I perhaps owe having become a painter to flowers.? Monet has not been the only person to be inspired by the beauty and diversity of flowers. Flowers are popular with everyone and appear in a wide range of places. Floral fabric designs are always in stores and flowers are often given as gifts. They are also used as embellishments in hair styles and on cakes. Flowers have even been used to make clothing, as seen on the television show Project Runway, in which the contestants created dresses entirely out of fresh flowers and plants.

What is it about flowers that is so intoxicating? Perhaps it?s their sweet scent, vibrant colors, and unique petal arrangements. Perhaps it?s the way we feel as they bloom in our gardens and mark the arrival of spring and the re-awakening of nature. Signifying warmer weather and the splendor of nature, it?s no wonder that flowers are both a fascination and an inspiration. Flowers are nature?s art form, so it?s only natural for us to showcase flowers in the same manner.

UAG presents Garden Variety, an exhibition of artwork inspired by flowers, plants, and other green things that sprout from the earth. With featured artist, Shannon Russell.
