ITEM # 1
ART IN BLOOM 2014 SIGNATURE ART WORK

Shatner photograph

1. Original Signature Art - Crystal Light #5 by Elizabeth Shatner
Created by our 2014 Signature Artist for this year’s Art in Bloom, this framed, digital photograph (32” x 48”) is printed on museum-quality canvas using archival Giclée inks. This photo employs only 100% natural light, with minimal post-processing. Crystal Light #5 is one of a portrait series of a bloom from Elizabeth’s pet orchid. Having passed its prime, the bloom fell from the stem. As Elizabeth prepared to pick it up and discard it, she noticed that a beam of sunlight, shining through a crystal vase next to the flower, was producing a beautiful spectrum of color. She gently moved the bloom into that expanded light, and the beauty of this wilted bloom was revealed. The vase itself was an award given to the Shatners by the Starlight Foundation for their philanthropic works. The positive energy, given freely by the sun, along with a gift connected to the altruistic giving of oneself, merged to convey the message of the flower. “There are times in our lives when we may seem less than we were before; but when the light is found and received, we uncover eternal love, beauty, and grace…the perfection that lies beyond the initial perception.”
