Don’t miss your last chance to enter the 2012 Mountains in Bloom Garden Festival Flower Show at The Bascom in Highlands, NC. Entries are being accepted for the flower arrangement, photography and horticulture divisions.
On Friday and Saturday, July 13th – 14th, 2012, from 10am-5 pm, at The Bascom campus, don’t miss the free-admission, juried Flower Show with nationally recognized judges. The magnificent juried flower arrangement and photography entries will be showcased throughout the art center’s early 1800s hand hewned post and beam barn.
The Her Impressions exhibition’s White Fox by Jeanie Gallup Mottet (pictured) will be the focal point of the Flower Arrangement division’s Interpretation class at this year’s Mountains in Bloom Flower Show.
The Flower Arrangement division includes six classes: Interpretation of Jeanie Gallup Mottet’s White Fox; In the Biedermeier Style; “V” is for Vase; Fired and Flowered; Mass Blass; Waterfalls of the Highlands-Cashiers Plateau (professional class); Who’s Wearing Flowers (youth); and the Celebrity Challenge. Photography classes include “Focus on Flora” and “Scenic Settings”.
The show will also feature juried horticulture entries in the Dave Drake Studio Barn. Horticulture division entry cards will be available at The Bascom prior to the show. Balentine, the lead sponsor for Mountains in Bloom, will present the award in the Horticulture Division for most outstanding display of a native plant, single or collection, that is indigenous to the Highlands-Cashiers Plateau.
