Ephemeral: Interpretations of the Cherry Blossom Opens at Lorton Workhouse


Opening Night Reception for “Ephemeral” at Lorton’s Workhouse Arts Center

The National Cherry Blossom Festival started off with a show – at Lorton, VA’s McGuire Woods Gallery in the Workhouse Arts Center.

Robert Kincheloe at his installation of glass cherry blossoms. The imagery (made from hot glass) suggests frozen branches with cherry blossoms encased in ice, ready to emerge for the spring.

Curated by Laurel Lukaszewski and Komelia Honja Okim, the show was to express aspects of “fleeting moments and delicate sensibilities”. Follows are some photos from the opening night.
