In a departure from presenting traditional gardens, Williamson’s exhibit in next week’s 2014 Philadelphia International Flower Show will depict a garden that appears to be in motion, flowing like a stream through drifts of massed plantings.
View a slideshow of this semester’s Flower Show preparation below.
The exhibit will accentuate flowing lines that create a sense of movement and water will cascade from a geometric sculpture made of odd shaped blocks onto stones resembling a flowing stream trickling through large masses of plants of contrasting colors and patterns.
The exhibit, entitled “Liberation from Tradition,” was inspired by the gardens designed by Roberto Burle Marx, a Brazilian landscape architect who loved freedom of form and designing from the inspiration of natural landscape.Exhibit sponsors are: Aqua America, Inc., the Franklin Mint Federal Credit Union, the Hoxie Harrison Smith Foundation, KC Signs, Precision Printing, Malcom Raggett, and Safeguard Business Systems.
“ARTiculture,” runs from Saturday, March 1, to Sunday, March 9, at the Pennsylvania Convention Center at 12th and Arch Streets, Philadelphia. For more information call 215-988-8899 or visit www.theflowershow.com.]]>
