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!

This page will always display work from the latest major flower show. For previous shows, click on the links to the left in the green bar. To see all or our designer's work, please scroll down.

Flora in Winter

Worcester Art Museum
January 25-28, 2018

Kathy Michie displayed "tunnel vision" when she created this stunning arrangement made interpret Hubert Robert's painting of ruins.

Kim Cutler created a yellow and orange design hoping to repeat the rhythms in this color field painting by Gene Davis.

Susan Dewey designed a beautiful arrangement to go with a rather severe American portrait by John Singleton Copley.

Inspired by a German suit of armor, Sarah Ribeiro filled her hand-crafted container with heraldic and somewhat aggressive flowers.

Joan Laracy raised the Virgin and child up on stilts and created a circular design intended to show the love between mother and son.

Working live before a rapt audience, Julie Lapham created this elegant design to accompany a large double portrait from the Regency Period.

Once again, Mary Fletcher interpreted a handsome portrait capturing the refined dignity and elegance of the sitter.

Sally Jablonski interpreted a Bacchanal by Piero do Cosimo referencing the central tree and the chaos going on on the ground below.

Marne Mailhot channeled an Asian aesthetic in her double design that interpreted a 8th century Chinese Buddhist bodhisattva.

This sweet, serene design by Robin Whitney was double sided to interpret the two small Thai buddhas. From this angle, only one side is visible.

Barbara Athy created a nest-like arrangement in terra cotta, black and white to go with the ancient Peruvian bird.

Here are the three mannequins that Jeff French created to honor Flora's chairs. Beautiful, fun, and certainly appreciated.
