Art Blooms is a weekend exhibit featuring the work of more than 30 floral designers from across the region. Each floral designer is assigned a work of art in the Main Gallery or the Mezzanine Gallery and asked to create an arrangement inspired by that work of art. The results are surprising, beautiful, and provocative - and not to be missed. 2016 will mark the 7th year for Art Blooms, an exhibit co-hosted by the Calvert Garden Club and Ann's Circle of Annmarie Garden. Admission is FREE!

Information for Artists
The Gift Shop at Annmarie Garden invites artists and craftspeople to apply to the Annual Ornament Show & Sale to take place during the holiday season. Artists and craftspeople working in any medium are invited to apply - fine arts, folk art, and craft media, toys, etc. Individuals as well as groups may apply to share a tree and sell their creations. The beautiful Main Gallery of the Arts Building at Annmarie Sculpture Garden will be the setting for the show. All sales will run through the Gift Shop, so artists need not be on site every day. Applications are reviewed on a first come, first served basis. Artists will be notified of acceptance into the show within one week of application submission. Modest booth fees apply.
