Telfair in Bloom

Telfair Academy Guild presents Telfair in Bloom 2018, a vibrant festival of art and flowers featuring work by local designers. Telfair in Bloom will bring the museum to life with spring flora! Works this year will be from Telfairs’ permanent collection as well as Scenic Impressions: Southern Interpretations from the Johnson Collection.

Designers will interpret works of art by creating original floral arrangements that remain on display during the entire three-day festival. Using glorious, fresh flowers to interpret Telfair’s collection of paintings, sculptures, and decorative arts, these designers will open up a whole new way of seeing the museum, proving that not all art is in a frame. Proceeds will help fund improvements to the Jepson Center Sculpture Terrace. For questions,  sponsorship, or tickets, please contact Lauren Grant at 790.8866 or

With support from Flower General by Carlstedt’s Savannah and kathi rich clothing.
