The Western Hills Garden Club and the College of Mount St. Joseph have joined forces to present a unique exhibit at Studio San Giuseppe“Bloomin’ Arts: Juried Art Works Enhanced by Floral Designs” will feature amateur floral designs on display alongside the student works of art, which served as their inspiration.

Studio San Giuseppe’s current exhibit, running June 1 through September 14, includes selected student artworks representing the best of the Mount’s departments of art and design, fine arts, graphic design and interior architecture and design.  Amateur floral designers selected specific projects to inspire their own corresponding floral designs, which will be judged by a panel of official National Garden Club flower show judges.

In addition, Western Hills Garden Club will present several area professional designers, who also created floral arrangements inspired by the student artwork.

The floral/art exhibit is open to the public at no charge over two days, Thursday, August 9 (12 p.m. to 7 p.m.) and Friday, August 10 (10 a.m. to 7 p.m.).  In addition, the college is hosting an evening reception for the community, featuring light refreshments, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. on August 9.  Garden Club members will be on hand to discuss their designs.
