We spent a delightful day at the NYBG where 17 rarely seen Hawaiian paintings by Georgia O’keeffe are on display. The Conservatory is adorned with flowers and plants from Hawaii that influenced these works. The show is on thru October 28th and I encourage you to visit. Don’t miss the short video and of course the paintings (in the Mertz Library) which explains why she went and how she was inspired by the islands.

It has been about 10 years since Dale Chihuly’s work was last seen at NYBG. Dale Chihuly is an international art star. He changed the course of glass art with his innovation, creativity and amazing talent. I’ve been following his work since his days of glass blowing at RISD’s Tillinghast Farm where we both went to school in the ’60’s. In 2014 we went to Seattle and saw his beautiful work at the Chihuly Garden and Glass Museum in the shadow of the Space Needle. This new exhibit at NYBG is inspiring and if night lights are something you like, why not go for the evening and see some of his work in a different light?

Every once in awhile I break from the usual Sunday zoo photos. We went up to the NY Botanical Garden in the Bronx to see the Orchid Show: Thailand. It is an enormous exhibition filled with color, light, shadow, shape, sounds and smells. It is open through April 9th and I highly recommend a visit.orchids2017
