For the month of June, Gravers Lane Gallery will have vibrant, new window installations celebrating the annual Philadelphia Flower Show “Habitat: Nature’s Masterpiece”, June 5-13. https://phsonline.org/
Included will be new work by GLG director, Bruce Hoffman of still life floral constructions made from reclaimed plastic bottles, found objects and paint. These allegorical vanitas reference 17th century Flemish paintings, juxtaposed against the ubiquitous, plastic floral arrangements proudly seen in the windows of South Philadelphia row homes.
