Anastasia & Friends in Columbia, SC, Features Exhibit of Vessels

Anastasia & Friends in Columbia, SC, will present the exhibit, VESSELS, featuring works by Anastasia Chernoff, Katherine Elliott, Kara Gunter, Paul Kaufmann, Matthew Kramer, Paul Moore, Virginia Scotchie and Roe Young, in collaboration with floral and plant artists, Sandra Crosland Chastain, Candace Engel and Rudy Goff, on view from Aug. 4 - 26, 2011. A reception will be held on Aug. 4, from 6-9pm, during the First Thursday on Main event.

VESSELS is an art exhibition where organic meets and becomes sculpture. The exhibition will consist of ceramic, metal and mixed media in conjunction with a vast variety of exotic flowers and plants. The works of art that have been created will include openings for plant and floral artists to create organic sculptures that harmonize with the vessels.

“The vessels and flowers are, already, works of art on their own, and, with the unusual types of plants that will be used and arrangements that will be created, I feel like we’re all going to be blown away. Let’s just say, you won’t be looking at a basic floral arrangement or typical houseplant ... these will be organic installations. Get ready for a very unique exhibition,” says an excited Anastasia Chernoff.

Local floral supplier, Florida State Wholesale Flower Farm is the sponsor for the incredible flowers you’ll witness, and Verde Garden has agreed to supply the succulent and exotic plants for this innovative show.

Anastasia & Friends, art gallery is located in the front of the Free Times builiding in Columbia, just across from the Columbia Museum of Art.
