Experiencing the Miracle Of Spring Blossoms

Anthomania, a show of work by Marilla Palmer at Furnace Art on Paper, will close after this weekend, on July 18.

A fourth-generation resident of Litchfield County, Palmer and her family moved from Brooklyn to Lakeville, Conn., during the pandemic. Although she had been linked to the area for her whole life, this past year was the first in which she fully experienced nature in all the seasons. 

“Waiting for the first blooms of Spring became an obsession,” she said in a description of her new work. 

“When they came it was exhilarating. They had names and provenances. A rare few were native wildflowers but many were world travelers.” 

The plants Palmer saw represented the gardens of the world: peonies from Eurasia, tulips from Turkey, nasturtiums from Mexico, poppies, delphinium, columbine.  

The gallery is at 107 Main St. in Falls Village, Conn. Hours are Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and by appointment (email Kathleen@furnace-artonpaperarchive.com).
