Nothing says springtime in the Methow more than the brief, much anticipated appearance of the tiny but colorful flowers that follow the retreating snow in April and May. Yellow bells, blue bells, spring beauties, buttercups, shooting stars and more all transform the landscape and bring joy to our winter-weary hearts. These early spring flowers are the inspiration for a show by the cooperative artists of the Winthrop Gallery. Viewed up close, a single flower reveals the delicate beauty of a natural wonder. Seen as part of the landscape they rejuvenate meadows and hillsides, and us as well. Join the artists of the Winthrop Gallery in a celebration of our native plants represented in paintings, photography, drawings, ceramics, textiles and more.
