Our Next Event:
Thursday February 19, 2015
Mark Werther - Orchid Exhibits
Drawing from his twenty year background in designing and
executing orchid exhibits, Mark will show just about every type of
exhibit. With use of props, he will present an in-depth discussion of
design principles and will review "impact characteristics".
He will illustrate and highlight examples to make sure the
members and display committee team understand how to select the best
plants to exhibit. There will be a review of do's and don'ts. As is the
case more than not, he will explain that once the design is set, field
review of on site conditions may dictate last minute changes. Bearing in
mind that display judging can be highly subjective , there are some
guidelines that should be followed to keep the display " in the
running". To that end, Mark will provide his insight.
As we experienced when Mark last visited BCOS, we anticipate a
lively discussion with Q&A.
Mark is the owner of Sentinel Orchids (www.sentinelorchids.com)
and has recently released his 2014 catalog, which can be downloaded.
Mark will be offering a 20% discount for orders placed before the
meeting; purchased plants will be brought to the meeting, as he does not
ship during the winter.
