Attleboro Arts Museum's Flower Show closes in record fashion
ATTLEBORO -The final day of the annual Attleboro Arts Museum Flower Show drew not just a record-breaking crowd on Sunday afternoon, but an unprecedented number of original artworks sold throughout the weekend's floral exhibition.The show's theme, "Jewels of the Garden," featured eight artisan booths, each with a birthstone motif, as well as 163 original artworks on the gallery walls, which in itself was a record-setting display, according to museum executive director Mim Fawcett."I think it's been a tough year and a tough winter," Fawcett said. "The weather and the world is complicated, and seeing beautiful things that are not complicated really helps everyone's spirit."Many patrons had cameras to capture the beauty of the floral and landscape exhibits, such as the multi-hued purple spray of flowers from Nolan's Flowers and Gifts, or the elephant constructed of moss and complemented with daffodils and forsythia by Flowers By The Station - a popular attraction for selfies."It's amazing...

A Dream World at the Kent Museum
Brattleboro couple Julia Zanes and Donald Saaf.
Visitors who venture to the tiny unincorporated community will first see two giant bird's nests. Positioned on the lawn in front of and behind the buildings, they were built from tree branches and hay by schoolchildren under Zanes and Saaf's guidance. The project makes sense in light of the art inside, which, at the time of Seven Days' visit, Evans and Emlen were still hanging.
Birds and other animals, typically out of scale with their surroundings, populate the couple's colorful, figurative paintings. Zanes' work, often inspired by dollhouses, depicts castles and other structures set among towering flowers. Birds figure literally large in Saaf's work, sometimes the size of the humans who share the canvas.

Puppets by Julia Zanes
The artworks invite viewers to guess at the stories they tell, and they seem to speak to children and adults equally. They could be parables, as the exhibition title indicates, but that's not the only interpretation. The artists derived that title from Goethe's Faust, which also serves as the basis for a single marionette performance they'll give near the end of the show. In the translation that Zanes and Saaf use, the relevant excerpt reads, "Everything destructible could only be a parable."
While both artists explore storytelling, they do so using distinct styles. Zanes' paintings lean toward dreamlike surrealism; Saaf's are more folk-influenced and oft... (Seven Days)Feb 3, 2016
