About the Show
If there ever was a flower which symbolized glorious summertime, the sunflower is the one. Did you know that nearly all of the 70 species of sunflowers are native to North America? They can grow to be up to six feet tall and they even tilt as the sun moves so they always face it!
The Blackstone Valley Art Association is celebrating this sun-shaped delight with a sunflower show throughout the month of September at the Booklovers’ Gourmet in Webster. Our show complements the massive garden of live sunflowers which the bookstore is famous for. Come on out to admire the live flowers, appreciate the artistic versions, and explore the shop’s offerings!
The submission deadline for the sunflower show is Monday, August 20th, 2018. We have limited wall space here for 16 items so what we’ll do is have each member submit an image or two via email to Lisa Shea they’d like to include. Depending on how many entries we get, we’ll see how many items we can hang per person. If we get too many we’ll do a Facebook vote. This show is open to all BVAA members and is free to participate in. This is not a judged show – it is primarily a visibility and sales opportunity. Any sales will include a 25% commission taken by the shop. The BVAA takes no commission on this show. Full BVAA terms: BVAA Show Terms and Conditions
The drop-off for the Sunflower Show is either Friday, August 31st, 10-6:30 or Saturday September 1st, 10-5. The shop will take care of hanging the items.
The reception will be 2-4pm on Saturday, September 8th.
Pick-up for the show is Saturday, September 29th, any time before 6pm (during their open hours of course 🙂 ).
This show is all about sunflowers! The Booklovers’ Gourmet is well known for their beautiful sunflower garden, which will be in full bloom during the show’s run.
