• Kevin Woodson | The Garden of Adornment

  • Back

The Garden of Adornment embarks into realms of design and ritual that ask us where the garden really ends and human culture begins – or if there was ever a separation between the two. Returning to Joyce Gordon Gallery after exhibits in 2016 (Peace Within Chaos) and 2018 (Night Flowers), the Garden of Adornment builds on Kevin’s well-known studio and plein air flowers, exploring new ideas in design, painting, paper, and adornments. 

  • OPENING RECEPTION: Thursday May 7, 6:00–9:00 PM Saturday
  • May 16: Artist Talk, 6:00-9:00 Saturday
  • June 20: Closing Reception 2:00–4:00 PM Saturday
  • May 9: Bloom and Brush special flower painting workshop with Kevin 2:00 – 4:00 PM

Keep your dream alive, artist statement:

“Even during dark times of this pandemic, I maintain the belief that art, love, and human expression have never been defeated by fear. But, as I make final preparations for The Garden of Adornment, many local galleries post cancelations and shutdowns. My commitment goes beyond this May 2020 show. I’m dedicating the Garden of Adornment to remind us all that staying safe isn’t only about protecting yourself, it’s about remembering to keep your dream alive and to live for what you love.”#KeepYourDreamAlive
