The Flower Shop
We invite you to join us for a special art exhibition titled The Flower Shop.
This exhibition aims to honour our florists and raise awareness about the unique challenges independent shops face in today's market and the ongoing climate crisis. It also encourages reflection on the work of our florists and the importance of supporting independent shops.
The exhibition celebrates the beauty of plants, which we admire for their aesthetic value.
As we appreciate flowers as art and bring them into our homes for contemplation in their natural state, it is crucial to consider the ecological sustainability of our actions. Should our contemplation of flowers also address ecological sustainability?
