Making Arrangements art exhibit explores the many moods of floral design at Goodyear Arts - CLTureSaturday, January 18, 2020
Making Arrangements curatorial proposal. Art by Corey Pemberton“This is a group exhibition which reflects on the exquisite task of balancing living alongside the tender clutter of having lived. Beyond unifying floral imagery, themes of joyful resistance, common nostalgia and conflicted sentimentality also run through the work,” Henderson said. “This show was my opportunity to experiment with how to approach curatorial work as a kind of temporal bouquet. Many methods of floral design exist in this beautiful space between language and mathematics, and as a curator, I wanted to challenge myself to work within this same balancing framework.”Making Arrangements opens at Goodyear Arts on Friday, January 10 from 6 p.m. – 9 p.m. and features work from Amy Bagwell, Corey Pemberton, Dennissa Young, Garrett Alan Fees, Grace Stott, Hailey Elise Hughes, Kassiane Patselas, Kaye Blegvad, Lora Mathis, Lucy Gillis, Marissa Paternoster (of The Screaming Females), Sami Cronk, Taylor Lee and William Mize.

Growing with the Times: How Local Plant and Garden Companies Adapt to ChangeTuesday, July 03, 2018
A few have been doing so for more than a century.
“It was like we went straight from winter to summer,” said Janna Pemberton Schmidt, who runs Pemberton Greenhouses with her siblings, Ashley Pemberton Herndon and Colin Pemberton, and her husband, Jeff Schmidt. “It’s been a strong but fast year, because of the late freeze.”
The plastic-covered greenhouses at Pemberton, located off Georgetown Road, are loaded with cascading hanging baskets and long rows of bright geraniums, begonias and other popular blooming stock this time of year, along with packed tables of tropical palms, orchids and ferns. In July, the nursery will begin tending to its seasonal inventory of more than 18,000 poinsettias, hand-pinching each plant to encourage full and festive blooms in time for Christmas.
Schmidt and her siblings are the sixth generation to run the family business, which was started in 1871 and passed to them in recent years from their mother, Judy Pemberton. The nursery has evolved multiple new services to address the regional community’s plant needs, including plant rentals and storage services, for residential and business clients who don’t have the time or space to keep their planted invest-ments thriving for the entire year.
Local restaurants also use the service to decorate their outdoor patios with greenery during the warmer seasons. Pemberton now has 20,000 square feet of dedicated greenhouse space... http://smileypete.com/business/growing-with-the-times/

F.C. Florist Sends Bouquets to Congresswomen Targeted by Trump - Falls Church News PressTuesday, September 10, 2019
Born in the Soviet Union-controlled Uzbekistan, Rabinovich and her family traversed through multiple countries before finally getting clearance to come to the U.S. She would grow up in the New Jersey/New York area, earning her citizenship by the time she was 16 and would later go on to get her degree in visual merchandising and interior design. AdvertisementsHer first job was working in a flower shop, an occupation that was always seen as a fallback for Rabinovich whenever she was in between gigs. She later realized she enjoyed working in flower shops more than any other job and started her own business out of her apartment in Arlington. Rabinovich wound up purchasing Galleria Florist in July 2015 when searching for a production space to operate out of, and last December she became an owner of Nosegay Flowers in Washington, D.C. — a former employer of hers.She re-emphasized that the flowers were merely a show of goodwill, but did add a general message to all Americans that, “The U.S. is a melting pot. It stands for inclusivity, not exclusivity. That’s what’s going to keep us going; diversity and the knowledge our immigrants bring to the country.”Share this:Comments comments... https://fcnp.com/2019/07/31/f-c-florist-sends-bouquets-to-congresswomen-targeted-by-trump/
