A Nod to The Beauty of Nature Exhibit by Nancy Harvey

In November, local event and floral designer Nancy Harvey will be exhibiting a series of mannequins that will express her love of nature in our Vault Gallery.

Nancy takes her inspiration from the Roman Gods Flora and Fauna said to favor or nurture all living creatures. They spoke of future events in wooded places. Their names are used most often for the study of plants and animals. I believe the most beautiful creative expression comes from nature in the form of a flower, a feather, a branch, or a leaf. Over the centuries nature has perfected this beauty and we as artists and designers use that beauty in the form of design for clothing and jewelry, to enhance ourselves.  That is why flowers are used in so many ceremonies throughout the world. They are expressions of love and beauty. For example, boutonnieres for weddings are a floral expression of love and devotion. Therefore I will use a variety of natural materials to create a series of mannequins for a whimsical and elegant nod to nature.  Ornaments will also coordinate with each expression that will be available for sale.
