Sara Nightingale Gallery is pleased to present Open Garden, a group exhibition of flower paintings and other media with floral motifs, opening Saturday, April 22, from 6:00 - 8:00PM at 26 Main St. in Sag Harbor. The exhibition will run through May 22nd.

In these politically charged times it’s become difficult to look at art without reading into it, being offended, or wondering if someone else will be offended. The polarization that has swept our land and divided us is creeping into art. Even an art genre as cliché and benign as flower paintings is not immune.

But sometimes a flower is just a flower. Rose is a rose is a rose.

  • Marissa Bridge
  • Anna Church
  • Rossa Cole
  • Elisabeth Condon
