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.

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.

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/

Highlands florist urges support for local shops as some take business to West Virginia - WSLS 10Wednesday, December 02, 2020
The owner said people who are frustrated with Virginia’s mask requirement and pledging not to wear them while shopping are only hurting small businesses like 'mom and pop’ places.“We’re close to West Virginia and a lot people are just jumping over the border because it’s like nothing ever happened over there, and over here we’re still very restricted, but if you continue to take all of your business to West Virginia, then the businesses here are not going to be here when you come back,” said Erin Huffman, The Flower Center owner.Huffman said small businesses like The Flower Center are just doing what is required in Virginia. https://www.wsls.com/news/local/2020/06/13/highlands-florist-urges-support-for-local-shops-as-some-take-business-to-west-virginia/
Business at local flower grower Three Little Buds is blooming - My BuckhannonMonday, August 24, 2020
Three Little Buds owner Joanna Webb, who is a chemistry professor at West Virginia Wesleyan College, talked to My Buckhannon from her beautiful gardens, located around her home in downtown Buckhannon.Webb said this is her fourth official growing season, but she has been growing flowers for a long, long time. She said her husband jokingly told her she could not grow any more flowers until she took part of her bounty to a local florist to see if they would be interesting in purchasing some of her blossoms.A market-style bouquet of flowers grown and arranged by local flower grower Joanna Webb. / Photo courtesy Joanna Webb“I had always kicked around the idea of selling flowers to local florists,” Webb said. “So, I took some of my dahlias to Anita’s Flowers of Buckhannon, and they told me they would love to buy local flowers.”She said she learned on the fly about growing flowers and started growing ones she found most beautiful.“I like the market bouquet-style of flowers,” Webb said. “With COVID coming in when most of the flowers were blooming, most of the florists were closed, and I had all of these flowers,... https://www.mybuckhannon.com/business-at-local-flower-grower-three-little-buds-is-blooming/
Tulip Fest had to be canceled, but Wooden Shoe Tulip Farm finds new life for flowers - OregonLiveMonday, April 27, 2020
Family members set up a farm stand, sold a few flowers, and figured they’d be forced to let the rest rot.The family then received an email from a West Virginia nursery owner who had an idea and wanted to pass it along to nurseries across the country. The idea: Take flowers in the fields to assisted living centers where residents were living in isolation.Emily Iverson, 21, a family member and Wooden Shoe’s social media coordinator, teamed up with Lexie Criscola, 22, the tulip farm’s marketing coordinator, to make it happen.They created a ticket order on the farm’s web page where, for $15, people could pay for a pot of tulips to be delivered anonymously to an assisted living center.So far, the farm has delivered 6,000 pots of tulips to assisted living centers in Mount Angel, Molalla, Canby, Albany and Eugene.“The farm will never see back the lost revenue from the festival,” said Iverson. “The $15 covers just a bit of the costs it takes to do this delivery. But this is not about money, this is about goodwill.”Criscola said a person can request tulips be delivered to a specific assisted living center or let farm officials figure out where the tulips would bring a bit of joy.“We reach out to a center and figure out the protocol for a delivery,” she said. “We make sure everyone in the center gets a pot. We deliver them to the front door, and then step back.”Iverson estimates all the tulips will be given away within the next couple weeks.“It makes us feel like we are doing something for the community,” she said.[embedded content]-... https://www.oregonlive.com/hg/2020/03/tulip-fest-had-to-be-canceled-but-wooden-shoe-tulip-farm-finds-new-life-for-flowers.html
