A new exhibition at Franklin Park Conservatory is the definition of a work of art.
Created by local artist Lea Gray, Bringing Reverence to Nature: An Exploration of Botanicals in Paper showcases beautifully designed plant sculptures made entirely of paper. It feels like one of those photo mind tricks, because when you look at the art, it genuinely looks like the botanical subjects are actual plants.
Gray is the owner and creator of PaperBlooms Design. She discovered a love or Origami which lead her to exploring more in depth paper creations. The exhibit will be on display at the conservatory until May 31 and it is included in admission.
If you fall in love with the exhibit, and let’s face it, that’s basically a guarantee, you can sign up to take some classes with the artist.
- April 24: Create a Paper Peony
- May 8: Create a Pink Paper Magnolia
- May 22: Create a Paper Succulent Terrarium
