Expressions Gallery has taken the lead from the San Francisco Museums (The Legion of Honor and the new De Young Museumwith their Bouquet to Arts shows every year) to recognize and incorporate floral art as an art form. We offer a regular exhibit of floral art that relates to the themes of the shows and/or expresses or interprets in floral arrangements of dried, silk, fresh flowers or mixed plants or combination of all the artwork displayed. Accordingly, we offer classes in floral design by noted floral artists.
