Mary Owen's flower exhibit at VMFAFork Union resident Mary Owen was one of over 50 artists who participated in Fine Arts and Flowers, a biannual event at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts in Richmond that highlights floral designers throughout Virginia. This year’s event took place Oct. 20-23.

The idea behind Fine Arts and Flowers is to feature floral designers whose unique interpretations of  flowers and foliage flatter the museum’s collection of fine art. The museum selects its participants from garden clubs in the Virginia Federation of Garden Clubs, Inc. and the Garden Club of Virginia.

A few members from the Fluvanna Art Association (FAA) took a trip to the museum and were amazed by the floral creations. For them it was seeing art at a different level. FAA President Susan Lang thought Owen’s arrangement was the best and Nancy Quantock said she was impressed with what she saw.
Of the 12 exhibits in past years, Owen has participated in eight.

Alex Waring with Grayson-broad wing hawkDeveloping awareness about wildlife is like learning about another culture.

Each species has been on this earth for centuries and has learned to survive and procreate without much help from humans. Yet there are times when it is necessary for people to intervene and help. This is where the Wildlife Center of Virginia (WCV) in Waynesboro comes into play.

On Nov. 19 the Lake Monticello Wildlife Committee sponsored programs called Wild Winter Worlds (Winter Adaptations) and Home Sweet Habitat at Grace and Glory Church in Palmyra. The events featured guest speaker Alex Waring, WCV outreach coordinator. Waring was accompanied by three wild friends: Wilson, an eastern box turtle; Phoebe, a 3-year-old opossum; and Grayson, a 9-year-old broad-winged hawk.
