Edmonton hosted the first annual Art in Bloom Festival earlier this month. The four day festival featured five art galleries and five flower shops collaborating in a fun and unique event.

Five talented flower shops teamed up with gallery owners to choose painting that inspired the designers. The floral designers then created fresh flower arrangements and installations, based on their interpretation of the art. The result: fabulously stunning and imaginative floral pieces!

Held in the 124ST arts district, spectators were free to roam the galleries at no charge. The event also offered floral and terrarium workshops, as well as talks with local artists. Thousands of Edmontonians flocked to 124ST for the festival.

Make sure to stay tooned for next year!
