Flower Shows


Since 1919, our members have demonstrated their talents at Flower Shows within Massachusetts and beyond. A portion of WGC's programming supports this activity through demonstrations and hands-on workshops. We are always amazed at the creativity and originality that resides in these individuals!

Flora in Winter

January 28-31,2016
Worcester Art Museum

Ten members of the Worcester Garden Club contributed their time and talent to creating floral designs for the museum. But others helped with events or the early morning watering chores. They are: Binky Bennett, Robin Whitney, Amy Gove, Susan Palatucci, Lisa McDonough, Debbie Pendleton, Val Stowe, Sue Wolfenden, Barbara Athy, Nancy Jeppson, Dawn Budd, and Judy VanderSalm. What a wonderful team!! Chairs Kathy Michie, Sarah Ribeiro and Kim Cutler give heartfelt thanks.

Julie Lapham made us chuckle with her humorous interpretation of Andy Warhol's "Tomato Soup."

Kim Cutler created an homage to Terri Priest using two triangular husband-made containers filled with callas.

Sarah Ribeiro's floral design interprets a wonderful church interior from 17th century Holland.

Sally Jablonski captured the otherworldly strangeness in this Flemish painting of Christ's Decent into Limbo.

In front of a live audience, Kathy Michie created this tightly designed arrangement to interpret this High Renaissance painting.

Val Stowe filled a "soup bowl" with a undulating pavé design as a companion to Renior's painting of his son.

Robing Whitney used lots of tender roses to reflect the elegant lady of leisure in this Tarbell portrait.

Susan Dewey used a cascade silvery greys and greens to portray Twachtman's impressionistic waterfall.

Marne Mailhot channeled to the dualism in Chinese philosophy in this serene arrangement interpreting a Han tomb pillar.

Also working with a Chinese object, Mary Fletcher played off the surface decoration on a 17th century baluster vase.

Winter in Bloom

February 12-14, 2016
Tower Hill Botanic Garden

Robin Whitney incorporated miniature daffodil plants and a charn=ming wagon wheel in this "think spring" arrangement.

Using two containers, Kathy Michie folded, curled, and manipulated foliage in this green and white design.

With "Stopping by the Woods on a Snowy Evening" in mind, Kim Cutler paired delicate orchids with the red sticks of varigated dogwood.
