Easy Spring Flowering Bulb Arrangements

Adding spring flowering bulbs to your home during the cold winter months of a new year can make you feel hopeful. The delicate petals, stunning pastel colors and seductive scents will transform your home into a scent-filled beautiful environment.

Pots of hyacinth, daffodils, tulips and crocus are a nice change from just greenery or fresh cut flowers, which you can easily have during most other seasons of the year.

The nice thing is that most nurseries, even floral departments in many stores, will be carrying lots of spring flowering bulbs through Easter. This eliminates the need to force bulbs indoors from scratch, making the process easier for you!

Right from the store, ready to transplant into your own decorative pot!

In this case, we will be using hyacinth bulbs. Simply cut away the plastic growing pot and place the plant with soil into your choice of container, making sure your pot has drainage holes. You may have to add additional soil depending on the size of pot or container you have selected.

The terracotta pot closely matched the size of the original growing pot, so there was no need to add soil. The soil in this case was moist enough, so watering was not required at the time of transplant. Once the bulbs start to bloom, you may need to water every day or two, but be careful not to over-water.

Within minutes, you have a lovely hyacinth arrangement that adds color and the promise of spring nearby.

As the bulbs grow and develop, each stage offers a unique look that is ever-changing with subtle surprises along the way.

The final blooms revealed different hyacinth shades: here a soft pink and a violet emerged. And each color is paired with its own unique fragrance, which grows stronger as the plant continues to bloom.

So much more than just pretty flowers—spring flowering bulbs in your home guarantee an early spring arrival!

Happy winter…happy spring!

Edward Hopper House Presents MILTON GLASER: LANDSCAPE PRINTS, September 7 - November 4, 2018, with Opening Reception, Thursday, September 13, 6:30 - 8:30pm

Edward Hopper House Museum & Study Center is pleased to announce an exhibition of landscape prints by renowned graphic designer Milton Glaser

The opportunity to exhibit in Edward Hopper’s home is one that Mr. Glaser has taken as both a great honor and an impetus to create his latest and most personal works to date.

The exhibition has drawn attention to a number of connections shared between the two artists and their artistic development, including the influence of time spent in Europe as young men, the resulting decision of each to turn toward a different artistic medium, and a mutual love for the Hudson Valley.

This show will feature numerous landscape explorations influenced by the late monotypes of Edgar Degas, which are also reminiscent of Hopper’s early paintings. In each case, Glaser begins with a drawing – in black and white or color – made from both memory and observation. He then uses a range of digital processes to layer a variety of patterns on top of and below the image, effectively creating a virtual lithographic press. This procedure, which enables him to discern and control the slightest changes in color, has resulted in a series of new works by Glaser that offer an at-once-familiar but unique perspective on the natural beauty of the Hudson Valley.

Milton Glaser is among the most celebrated graphic designers in the world today. His work has been featured in exhibitions and museums throughout the world, including one-man-shows at the Museum of Modern Art and the Georges Pompidou Center. He is the recipient of lifetime achievement awards from both the Cooper Hewitt National Design Museum and the Fulbright Association.

In 1974, he opened Milton Glaser, Inc., where he continues to produce a prolific amount of work, including the iconic I ❤ N Y symbol; perhaps the most replicated symbol of our time. He is also co-founder of New York Magazine and Push Pin Studios.

An exhibition poster and special edition post card books designed by Milton Glaser will be available for sale at Edward Hopper House.


As part of this exhibition, there will be an Interview with Milton Glaser by Ken Carbone on Saturday, October 13th, 2018 at 2pm.

Local residing design guru Ken Carbone will be interviewing Milton Glaser and will touch on Glaser’s long and creative career that continues to transform corporations, organizations and everyday imagery, Carbone will provide the setting and context for the artist (Glaser) to share his approach to art. There is no fine art vs. commercial art to Glaser, it is all art, and it this devotion to the creative process that guides his powerful vision.

4 Outdoor Kitchens - Beautiful Designs that Enhance our Outdoor Living!

Original Posting: On the Drawing Board, July 2018
Newsletter, Crisp Architects
Author: James Crisp, Crisp Architects Blog

"Nothing says summertime like cooking and eating in an outdoor kitchen"

It is the best of both worlds, in that you are outside with friends and family, and the cook can be part of the fun.  We have designed outdoor kitchens that are simple and have just a built-in grill, as well as fully furnished outdoor kitchens that rival their indoor cousins. While an indoor kitchen may be more practical for year-round cooking, it cannot compete with the feeling of cooking a great meal outdoors on a beautiful day. (We worked with Conte and Conte Landscape Architects on this project)

Kitchen One - Pool House Kitchen

Domenico Bianchi (b. 1955), Untitled 2013, Watercolor on paper, 14 x 9 1/4 inches

Remo Salvadori, born in 1947 in Cerreto Guidi, near Vinci in the province of Florence,  currently lives and works in Milan. Salvadori’s important solo exhibitions include those at the Fondazione Querini Stampalia, Venice (2005); Centro per l’Arte Contemporanea Luigi Pecci, Prato (1997); Magasin,Centre National d’Art Contemporain, Grenoble (1991); and the Italian Cultural Institute and The Art Gallery of Ontario, Toronto (1987).

Marco Bagnoli, born in 1949 in Empoli, has long been a presence at major international exhibitions including the Venice Biennial (1982, 1993, 1997), Documenta in Kassel (1982 and 1992) and Sonsbeek in Arnhem (1986).

Domenico Bianchi, born in 1955 in Rome, lives and works there today. Bianchi attended the city’s Accademia di Belle Arti, and at age 22 made his debut with a solo exhibition at Salvatore Ala Gallery in New York. In the years that followed, his work was shown at the Galerie Swart in Amsterdam, Yvon Lambert in Paris, Gian Enzo Sperone in Rome and New York, LA Louver Gallery in Los Angeles and Galleria Christian Stein in Turin and Milan.

The materials utilized by Marco Bagnoli, Domenico Bianchi and Remo Salvadori do not stray far from the commonplace pre-industrial objects that defined the “poor art” movement, but these pieces seem to transcend - adding allusions to the spiritual, the cosmic and the soul.

 

 

 

This exchange is the first between the two Hudson Valley arts organizations. Garrison Art Center and Magazzino Italian Art are dedicated to promoting the exhibition and enjoyment of art through educational and cultural experiences. This exhibition will feature select works on loan from the Nancy Olnick and Giorgio Spanu Collection. Olnick and Spanu founded Magazzino Italian Art, which opened in 2017, and is home to one of the most comprehensive collections of Post-war Italian Art and Design in the United States.

Salvadori, Bagnoli and Bianchi represent the next generation, following the Arte Povera movement, and are examples of the artistic talent flourishing in Italy today. These three artists were featured during the Magazzino Italian Art inaugural season. This exhibition at Garrison Art Center is an opportunity to view additional works by these prominent contemporary artists.
