No time for much of a post this morning so I'm following up on this past post, and this one, with a mini garden escape via Doris Duke's Mughal flowers

Also, another reminder for Atlantans: In conjunction with the Carlos exhibition, When Gold Blossoms, the museum is offering a two-week session metalwork studio for teens ages 13 to 17. The dates are June 21-25 and June 28-July 2.

Alan Bremer, President of the Georgia Goldsmith’s Group, will work with participants to create small-scale pieces in metal with the lost-wax casting method, colorful enameling, chain-making, and woven-wire fabric techniques with works from the exhibition as inspiration. Camp sessions are $185 per week for Carlos Museum members; $225 per week for non-members. 10% discount to families registering more than one child. For details or to register, call 404.727.0519 or click here.
