Named for the ancient Roman festival held in honor of Flora, the Goddess of Flowers, the exhibition Floralia features modern Western paintings of flowers, including still life works by Marcel Dyf and Jacques Danglas, and several antique Audubon prints.

About the Garden’s En Gallery

In Japanese, the word en written with one character 園 can mean garden. Written with a different character 縁, en can signify the special, and often mysterious, bond that connects people. It also refers to the veranda — a space that exists between inside and outside. Located in the Meeting Room of the house looking out on the garden, the gallery will feature exhibitions of art relating to nature, spirituality, wellness and relationships. The exhibitions will spotlight work by artists from all around the world and in a range of diverse styles and will be curated by Meher McArthur, an Asian art historian and Creative Director of the Storrier Stearns Japanese Garden.

  • Exhibition runs through December 7
  • When garden is closed, you may make an appointment to view this exhibition with the curator, Meher McArthur
  • The works will be for sale and part of the proceeds will benefit the garden’s educational and cultural programming
  • Please park on-site via one of our two driveways
