For the month of October, the Piermont Library presents our Virtual Art Show of the Month: In Lieu of Flowers by Laurie Peek
Statement from the Artist:
This photographic series, In Lieu of Flowers, is in memory of my son Jackson R. Turner, who drowned in Tulum, Mexico in July 2020. Because of covid, there was no funeral, only his shipped cremains. It is also for my mother, my grandmothers, teachers and friends whose funerals I could not attend… And it’s for all those who’ve experienced a similar loss. In my son’s case, as many do, I asked well-wishers to donate to a cause in lieu of sending flowers.
These images are 10.5” x 14” archival, pigment, photographic prints on vellum with hand-painted gold and silver metallic gilding on the backs. The flowers are mostly from my garden.
Signed, Editioned (5) Prints are $750
