ART IN BLOOM on Track for June – at the Black Mountain Center for the Arts
As of now, we are still on track to celebrate our 14th annual Art in Bloom scheduled for June 11, 12 and 13. Will we have a gala? We sure hope so. It’s a yearly event many people look forward to and will be a beautiful way to celebrate the end of our confinement!
With so many elements still uncertain, there is nothing but time to make flexible plans.
We typically select the artwork from regional galleries in early to mid May. Soon after we have hung that work, the talented floral designers make their selections and begin the process of planning their designs. On the evening of June 11 ticket holders enjoy a delicious dinner event to be the first to view the gorgeous floral designs paired with art work. The Art in Bloom Gala is a great reason to finally ditch the sweat pants, dress up and socialize.
With all this time at home the homeowners who have agreed to be part of this year’s tour are busy preparing their gardens. Two days of roaming freely with friends through six different gardens is a perfect way to reconnect with neighbors and nature. Tickets to the tour include access to the gallery and floral designs, discounts at local restaurants, and the chance to see plein air painters and other artists at work in each garden.
That’s how it’s gone for the past 13 years. Will 2020 be different? No doubt. The Arts Center needs your support and Art in Bloom is a wonderful way to help sustain us while reconnecting with your community. Black Mountain Center for the Arts

“Villages preserve culture: dress, food and dance are a few examples. As villages grow in population and turn into towns, local cafes make way for large American chains. Handmade leather sandals are discarded for a pair of Western sneakers.
Due to its small size, a village fosters a tight-knit sense of community. Justpeace.org explains the meaning of the African proverb, “It takes a village,” by stating that a sense of community is critical to maintaining a healthy society.
Village members hold a wealth of information regarding their heritage: they know about the ancient traditions, methods of production and the resources of the land. When villages become dispersed or exterminated in times of war, this anthropological knowledge disappears.
Large cities are not as conducive to growing and producing foods such as fruits and vegetables. Villages, on the other hand, usually have ample amounts of land and other resources necessary for growing conditions.” The Importance of Villages by Catherine Capozzi
