Blooming Narrative by Cassie Butcher & Shannon Woodford

Inspired by the language of flowers, also known as floriography, Cassie Butcher and Shannon Woodford explore their mediums, clay and paint, to communicate emotions, memories, and nostalgia through the use of flowers in their joint exhibition unfolding into a colorful display entitled, “Blooming Narrative.”

Asheville, NC clay sculptor, Cassie Butcher has produced a new body of work along with Waxhaw, NC painter Shannon Woodford to be featured at Art & Light Gallery in June. Their work explores the practice of using flowers to communicate, floriography, which dates back to ancient civilizations, such as the Greeks and Romans, but became popular in the Victorian era.

“Blooming Narrative” will be released through Art & Light Gallery at 10am EST on May 30th online or in the gallery and conclude on June 24th at 4pm EST. The exhibit can be viewed & purchases made at the Art & Light Gallery website.
