Arts In Bloom 2021

The Arts in Bloom exhibit is always a hightlight of the HCA's year! This year is no exception. Over 70 artists submitted artwork for consideration from 35 towns and 5 states. We received a wonderful variety of works from Experimental to Classical Realism and everything in between. 

Out of 178 pieces, Juror Tatiana Flis selected 35 for display in the this year's exhibition. Six pieces were identified for an award and will be honored with fresh flower arrangements designed the Hopkinton Garden Club members that will be on display May 7th - May 14th. 

The HCA Art In Bloom 2021 Exhibition will be available for viewing at the HCA's Lotvin Family gallery May 7 - June 24, 2021 as well as online here.
