Now celebrating its fourth year, Arts & Flowers has blossomed into one of Nashville's most successful and best attended cultural events. Benefiting GRAMMY nominated ALIAS Chamber Ensemble, this sizzling arts party is coming Saturday, July 20, to the W.O. Smith Music School.
"I think something magical happens when you pair visual art and floral design," says Jim Robert, ALIAS Executive Director. "This year we're pairing 20 featured artists with 20 featured floral designers, for a colorful collage of unique pieces that will compete for Best of Show. There's also a new gallery area with 10 additional artists, jeweler Ruthie Cherry and a floral arrangement by OSHi."
Some of Nashville's top culinary talent will provide heavy hors d'oeuvres and spirits, including Belcourt Taps, Whitfield's Restaurant, the Daily Dish and West Meade Wine & Liquor Mart. A new "sweets & coffee station" has been added this year, along with a photo booth for attendees to enjoy getting their pictures made while at the event and a copy to take home.
