On August 10, from 2 to 8 p.m., and August 11, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Shady Oaks Garden Club will present “Viewpoints,” a free standard flower show. A delightful array of exhibits will be of interest to plant lovers: 24 beautiful, creative floral designs; 12 Botanical Arts craft exhibits; over 100 flowering and non-blooming plants, identified with proper scientific names; and two educational exhibits. Everything in the show will be created or grown by the members of Shady Oaks Garden Club.
This event will be at Atelier 133 and Fischman Gallery, 133 N. Commerce St., Johnson City, a handicapped-accessible location. Because of the gallery location, the show will feature exhibits with an artistic perspective. Each horticulture or design class will have a name associated with art. In addition to the flower show, the gallery will have works by artists Nancy Jane Earnest and Janice Snapp on display.
The show will conform to the strict standards established by National Garden Clubs, Inc., with certified judges awarding blue, red, yellow, and honorable mention ribbons in each class or subclass. Judging will be prior to the beginning of the show, so attendees will be able to see which exhibits reached closest to the perfection desired.
Shady Oaks Garden Club was organized in 1958 and joined the Tennessee Federation of Garden Clubs, Inc., the following year. The club has received many state and national awards for its flower shows and other projects – twice winning the Kitty Anderson Flower Show Award for the Best Standard Flower Show in the state of Tennessee. Many excellent designers and growers of horticulture are in the club. They strive to live up to the designation as a Club of Excellence on a yearly basis.
