Artist -in -Residence
WITH NORDSTROM, SANTA BARBARA
"Nordstrom Department Store, in Plaza Del Oro, Santa Barbara, collaborates with artist Lenore Tolegian Hughes on THE ART OF BEAUTY to stimulate the senses used to experience beauty, fragrance, and the imagination; and SURPRISE POP-UP-INSTALLATIONS to offer unexpected art experiences and events for the enjoyment of the Santa Barbara community.
Ms. Hughes is a professional fine artist known for her watercolors, paper weaving collages, and installations. In her work she interprets the world around her by making art out of everyday packaging materials, product wrappers, and familiar images and symbols in advertising. She reconstructs the familiar in hopes of exposing a new reality, and invites viewers to take a second look.
In this collaboration with Nordstrom, Hughes incorporates her prize-winning and unique flower arrangements with her collage installations inspired by the colors, scents, textures and sights of the Nordstrom experience.
When asked about her unique flower arranging skills, she says, 'I like thinking out of the vase.'"
