This month, we decided to treat everyone in our Studio to a trip to the amazing Philadelphia Flower Show. This year’s theme was “ARTiculture – Where Art Meets Horticulture,” with floral displays inspired by the great artists of the world. For me, however, it was a day in paradise, because it was a day to enjoy two of my passions – art and flowers.
And I was thinking how timely it was to visit the flower show after a winter filled with a steady barrage of snowstorms! What a lift it was to enter that vast convention center filled with millions of flowers. What a celebration for the senses — from the subtle fragrance to the brilliant colors, from the intriguing textures to the imaginative use of flowers used to create dimensional “brush strokes” on all kinds of canvases.
It was great to feel so revitalized! Which led me to think about the joyful effect of flowers – in a vase, in a garden, in a work of art, or on a greeting card. Whenever I need something to cheer me up or want to brighten a friend’s day, flowers are my go-to treat. And if I can’t send real flowers, sometimes I’ll just send a beautiful floral card.
How about you – wouldn’t your day be a little brighter with some beautiful flowers?

I recently learned the fun fact that simply looking at bright colors can help to cure the winter blues. So here’s a healthy dose of color therapy, inspired by the charm of Saint Patty’s day, a spring day in the Irish countryside, and Kathy’s own cheery designs. What better way to conjure up some positive thinking than with the help of spring-timey golden greens! Are you feeling just a little, tiny-bit better?
Last March, Kathy Davis Studios and the Hatboro-Horsham High School art department worked together to create a dazzling exhibit of artwork created by high school students.
This year, we will again be working together to highlight some of the district’s top student artists with the exciting addition of outstanding elementary and middle school artwork. Please find some time in your busy schedule to join us for the opening reception on Friday, March 28th between 5 and 7:30 pm at the Kathy Davis’ Scatter Joy Gallery. We will be using the evening to celebrate some of our exceptional artists and their hard work and dedication.
This student show will be on exhibit from March 28 through April 23, 2014
By attending, you will be able to support the young artists from the Hatboro-Horsham School District and meet the artists and their families. And if you have not already, you can also get a quick glimpse into the very interesting world of Kathy Davis Studios.
