A little bit of the tropics comes to Moraga - LamorindaweeklyThursday, May 02, 2019
Ow, a 15-year member of the Lafayette Garden Club, has taken over the 49-year-old helm of her family-owned florist shop. If any proof was needed to confirm her skills as a master florist, Ow's creations have been featured in the de Young Museum's prestigious Bouquets to Art exhibit for 20 years. This year's museum exhibition marks the 35th anniversary, and according to the DeYoung it's "one of the Museum's most popular events." It's a "weeklong display of floral designs inspired by the works of art in the de Young's galleries." Explained Ow, "I didn't initially want to do the Bouquets to Art, because I'd have to drive into San Francisco every day to replenish the flowers." This year's displays feature the arrangements of 150 designers. Ow's assignment this year is to florally replicate painter Frederic Edwin Church's masterpiece "Rainy Season in the Tropics." "There are no awards or prizes," Ow said. "It's the thrill of being part of the event." During the luncheon, Ow recreated several of her previous Bouquets to Art entries which her daughter, Jacqueline Ow, compared with copies of the original works of art. When asked how a florist is chosen as a designer for the special exhibit, Ow informed the awestruck assemblage, "They go through your portfolio and visit your shop to make sure that you are equipped to handle the assignment and that your creations won't disappoint the patrons." To see Ow's upcoming creation, visit the Bouquets to Art exhibit at The de Young Museum, June 4-9. Advance tickets are strongly recommended. One of several centerpieces created by Moraga Garden Club members. http://www.lamorindaweekly.com/archive/issue1305/A-little-bit-of-the-tropics-comes-to-Moraga.html
