PRESS RELEASE
Flora & Fauna Art Exhibit at Del Ray Artisans Gallery
Exhibit Dates: March 4–26, 2022
Opening Day: Friday, March 4 from 12-9pm
The Flora & Fauna art exhibit at Del Ray Artisans gallery explores the interdependence of plants and animals, combining art and environmental science. In recent years, climate change and pollution have endangered the complex interactions between plants and animals.

Pollinators (birds, bats, bees, butterflies, beetles, and other small mammals) are vital to creating and maintaining the habitats and ecosystems that many rely on for food and shelter. Plants like almond trees, berry bushes and flowers need pollinators to survive and reproduce. Large animals, like giraffes and elephants, rely on plants for food, shelter, and shade to protect them from the environment and predators. This art exhibit is focused on exploring and showing these connections.

Join us on opening day, Friday, March 4 between 12-9pm for the widest selection of artwork. Mark your calendar now or set a reminder through Eventbrite.

Have you always wanted to try your hand at floristry? Register now for the “Flowers Everywhere!” workshop on Saturday, March 19 from 6:30-8:30pm. Instructor BWS Johnson will teach you how to level up grocery store arrangements and the difference in quality between wholesale and retail blooms, plus you’ll get to bring home your masterpiece at the end of the workshop. Event details and registration are at DelRayArtisans.org/workshops
