Please RSVP to: studio@susanmichal.com

Flowers in Transition is a photography exhibition featuring the fine art flower photography of Susan Michal.

A note from the artist: When you look at a flower through the camera lens you see things that you may never have noticed when viewing them with the naked eye. I love the complex textures, the intense colors and the unexpected shapes. Some are soft and gentle in their beauty, some are bold, many are funny and some are just strange, proving that God has an intense sense of humor and a strong imagination. I am very aware of the short life that flowers have, and have been very interested in photographing them as they transition through the stages of bud to bloom and death.
Susan Michal’s fine art book, Flowers in Transition will be available for pre-purchase during the exhibit.
Prints exhibited will be available for purchase.
