Nancy Lorenz: Shimmering Flowers Exhibition

May 22, 2019

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.
