An Autumn Art Celebration will be held at Des Moines Florist (721 S. 219th Street) on Saturday, Sept. 7, from Noon – 5 p.m. “Join us for the opening reception of a month-long celebration of the arts,” reads an announcement. “Artists’ works will be available from September 7 – 28.” Local artists include Anita Corby, Judy Lane and Dana Lasswell, who will feature their beautiful works of jewelry; photography and mixed media; and sculpture and pottery – all for under $100.00. “The act of giving flowers conveys an emotion; just as art evokes emotion,” said Des Moines Florist owner and former Des Moines Arts Commisioner Cora Morrison. “This inaugural event will feature unique, one-of-a-kind works of art at reasonable prices.” Des Moines Florist is a floral boutique featuring the finest quality in fresh flowers and plants since it was founded in 1959, offering beautiful designs for every occasion.
