This year 14 works of art were selected, created in different pictorial styles – from the expressionist Ernst Kirchner to the avant-garde Oscar Luthy and landscape painter Alexander Kalam.

The main illustration for the material shows the work of the surrealist artist Meret Oppenheim, “Dark Mountains, Red-Yellow Clouds on the Right” (1977-1979), accompanied by a floral composition by Regula Gul from Zurich. The flower arrangement is exquisitely emphasized with design vases that repeat the motifs of the painting.

This year all tickets were bought in advance, so only selected people will be able to see the works presented at the exhibition. We have used Kunsthaus Aargau photos and offer you to enjoy wonderful works of art – both picturesque and floral.
Paintings and floral compositions that made up the exhibition “Flowers for Art” 2020
Like many other museums, the Art Museum in Aargau has introduced additional measures related to the coronavirus epidemic. Due to a decision of the Federal Directorate of Health, events involving more than 1,000 people are now banned, and each exhibition, “Flowers for the Arts”, is a constant stir. Therefore, the vernissage and children’s events have been canceled and the exhibition itself is only open from 3 to 8 March.
