After undergoing an overhaul to remove the damages caused by Typhoon Megi, the Taipei Rose Garden will reopen to the public with an exhibition featuring pressed flower art between December 2 and 25!
In collaboration with the United Pressed Flower Art Society, the exhibition encompasses 32 delicate artworks which were displayed at the Shanghai New International Expo Center and the 9th Cross-strait (Xiamen) Cultural Industries Fair earlier this year. The event organizer also invited the agricultural technology center and pressed art club from South Korea’s Gurye County to conduct an exchange on techniques regarding the craft during the exhibit.
According to Parks and Street Lights Office Director Huang Li-yuan, pressed flower art extends the lifespan of plants in the form of eternal beauty. Incorporating elements of roses, the exhibition allows visitors to appreciate the painterly artworks against a background of a real rose garden.
Viewers are given a rare opportunity to take a closer look at how the various traits of petals and leaves can be revived through pressing and flattening. The showcase also features hands-on activities for participants to create their own pieces of art.
Date and Time: 1:30 PM on December 2
