Making Arrangements art exhibit explores the many moods of floral design at Goodyear Arts - CLTureSaturday, January 18, 2020
Charlotte. She co-curated the 2016 show Unibrow with local sculpture artist Grace Stott, continues to co-curate a mobile and accessibility-driven gallery, Wheeling Art Dealing, and just last year started Southern Ladies Arm Wrestling (an inclusive arm wrestling league open to all femme-identifying folks). Henderson is active in the arts community and handpicked each artist based off the content, concept, or context of their work as it pertains to the 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.

"The downtown area is where we wanted to be, so we're very happy." Walker is a city native who has worked in corporate banking for about 20 years. While he's still in the financial world, he said he will soon leave it and run his business full-time. "I was not even thinking about the floral industry," Walker said. "Kile (Hedges) and I had been friends for over 20 years. He has been in the industry for over 20 years, with interior and exterior design as well. Me? All corporate. "So I really wanted a change in my life to something more of a positive. There's so much negativity going on in the world. And I really wanted to take a job and do something completely different than what I was doing. And this is completely di... https://www.lancastereaglegazette.com/story/news/local/2018/03/16/walkers-floral-design-studio-latest-addition-downtown-lancaster/424634002/

Des Plaines florist remembered for his charitable works for children - Chicago Daily HeraldThursday, January 14, 2016
Kids Hope United in Waukegan; Allendale Association in Lake Villa; Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville; Nicasa in Round Lake; and food pantries at CEDA Northwest in Mount Prospect and at Wheeling Township in Arlington Heights.Harney got into the floral business during college. He worked his way through school by designing and delivering flowers for a Chicago florist.He opened his own shop in 1962; Harney named it Aberdeen's Wedding Flowers so it would be the first florist listed in the phone book.His love of flowers, especially international varieties, landed him jobs on high-profile weddings, including Michael Daley, son of Mayor Richard J. Daley, and Tricia Nixon's wedding in the White House.According to family members, Harney landed the wedding for Tiny Tim -- best known for his song "Tiptoe Through the Tulips" -- by ordering all the tulips available from the Holland Tulip Exchange before the wedding, which was set to air on NBC's "The Tonight Show."When NBC's florist couldn't get tulips, Harney's persistence convinced network officials to give him the job. He filled the studio with thousands of yellow and white tulips for the ceremony, and the ensuing publicity helped the business soar.But it was his final years of helping disadvantaged children that gave Harney the most pleasure.Harney talked about his annual mission to provide toys and joy to sick children in a 2012 Daily Herald interview."Their stories are unbelievable," Harney said. "I'll remember some of these children forever."Services have been held. http://www.dailyherald.com/article/20160106/news/160109507/
Arlene's Flowers v. Washington - Cato InstituteTuesday, October 22, 2019
Yet the U.S. Supreme Court precedent against compelled speech is strong. In West Virginia State Board of Education v. Barnette (1943), the Court ruled that school children could not be forced salute the flag and recite the pledge of allegiance. And in Wooley v. Maynard (1977), the Court found that New Hampshire could not require drivers to display the state motto (“live free or die”) on their license plates. (That case is why, if your jurisdiction has a default slogan—for example, “taxation without representation” in D.C.—it has to offer you an alternative if you ask.) In a pair of 2018 cases, NIFLA v. Becerra, and Janus v. AFSCME, the Court found that states could not force a pro-life clinic to read a script advising patients on how to get an abortion, and that non-union members of a collective bargaining unit could not be forced to pay for union speech with which they disagree, respectively.The Court had the opportunity to tackle the issue of whether states may force wedding vendors to create cakes for same-sex weddings in Masterpiece. But the Court didn’t reach the issue of whether the First Amendment—speech or religion clauses—protects a refusal to provide a product or service for a particular occasion, if so how to draw the line between professions that are and aren’t sufficiently expressive to gain that protection, or any other major controversy that continues to roil lower courts. Justice Clarence Thomas wrote a concurrence offering some guidance, but post-Masterpiece state and circuit courts have diverged.As it has in previous stages of this litigation, Cato has filed an amicus brief supporting Arlene’s Flowers—again joined by Reason Foundation and Individual Rights Foundation—urging the Supreme Court to take up the case and settle these issues and ambiguities after all. Cato is the only organization in the country to have filed briefs in support of both Jim Obergefell (lead plaintiff in the Supreme Court’s same-sex marriage case) and Jack Phillips (owner of Masterpiece Cakeshop). It shouldn’t be so hard to see the difference between government action and individual conscience, to have official equality while letting a thousand flowers bloom. https://www.cato.org/publications/legal-briefs/arlenes-flowers-v-washington-2

Be Local when preparing for prom - Uniontown Herald StandardTuesday, May 01, 2018
Christmas with March and April being the busiest time — especially for seamstresses who make alterations. Lovat said her shop, which also carries silk flowers, receives customers from as far away as West Virginia and Ohio.This year’s trends for prom include mermaid gowns with a fluffy bottom as well as a two-piece gown that includes a separated bodice and skirt.“Some like the plain but more like the bling,’’ said Lovat. “Then they get the accessories: shoes and jewelry. It all has to blend in.’’Popular jewelry pieces include rose gold and blue sapphire, Lovat said, while popular colors for gowns this year include black, gray, white and champagne.Regarding tuxedos, Ptak said, “Basic black is still used but many are going for fashionable colors in the blue family: navy, cobalt and indigo. Slim-fitting pants are almost a must for those who like and can wear it. Slim-fitting tuxedos are extremely popular. It’s the look you see on TV: a shorter coat and slim fit is very popular.’’Ptak said many youths want to coordinate with their date’s outfit but some want their own looks. Matching vests are as popular as colored vests.“What’s really popular are bow ties,’’ said Ptak, noting some even choose plaid and multi colors.He observed that where youths came in alone or with their dates in the past, today it becomes a family event with lots of photographs taken.Photographs are also popular at hair salons where many youths are experiencing their first formal hairstyle.“Braids are in at the moment,’’ said Morriston. “But it’s usually an updo where you curl and pin everything.’’Morriston said hairdressers can add glitter or a piece the youths bring in, such as a broach, to accessorize the young lady’s hair.Don’t wait too long to order flowers as Steve Neubauer, of Neubauer’s Flowers in Uniontown, noted many proms are taking place over Mother’s Day weekend, already a busy time for florists. Order early to find the best selection of flowers.When you do order, there’s a variety of choices.“Hand-tied nosegays are the most popular this year,’’ said Neubauer, “followed by wrist corsages and arm bouquets.’’As for colors, Neubauer said, “With technology, everybody has plenty of colors. The colors are as varied...
