Nancy Lorenz: Shimmering Flowers Exhibition

NL2019 b012 Peony Box 9x12x4 28 A29

Nancy Lorenz (BFA 85) will display her work at the Berkshire Botanical Garden in Stockbridge, MA. Her exhibition, Shimmering Flowers, is comprised of bronze-cast landscapes and vessels inspired by techniques from traditional Asian craft. The opening reception will be on May 31st from 5 – 7 pm and her exhibit will be on display from June 1st through September 30th.

Nancy Lorenz incorporates techniques from traditional Asian crafts, drawing on her years spent living in Japan and a thirty-five-year career as a noted contemporary abstract painter. For Shimmering Flowers, Ms. Lorenz has created gilt and mother-of-pearl paintings that complement the Garden’s collection of flora and will also present table-top landscape vessels in cast bronze, creating a dialogue with the galleries and their surrounding gardens. Throughout the summer, these vessels will display arrangements created by a rotating group of talented floral designers whose interpretations of the art are reflected in unique displays of flowers and other natural materials.
