Tending the Wallflower Take II
~Curatorial Statement~

When most people think flowers ~colour & smells come to mind.
With the Georgia O‘Keeffe show on at the AGO
My mind wonders about flowers for more than their colour & smell.

To their form, & the inner workings of the petal, stem, & stamen,
As a Landscape, as a home for my eyes (& for insects).
O’Keeffe looked at everything with a Careful Meditative Eye.
She spent the Time really Seeing their inner depth, grace of form
& movement of colour through the petal.
This year’s show, at Neighbourhood is trying
To take that closer look~ at the wonder of this small cosmos;
We call the flower.

Ponder & Enjoy!

~Lauren McKinley Renzetti
Curator, June 2017
