Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - The Puerto Vallarta Garden Club March meeting will once again be at Di Vino Dante Wine & Tapas Bar on Basilio Badillo on March 17th at 5 pm. The guest speaker will be Mike Laking, the artist and photographer whose beautiful orchid image was chosen for our Fiesta Blanca gala.
His works have been featured in numerous exhibits and galleries, have won several national and international awards, and are included in collections across Canada, the United States, Europe and Mexico.
Laking was the grand prize winner of 2010 Vallarta Botanical Gardens Photography Contest and third prize winner of the 2011 event. He says of his work with flowers; "the delicate, fleeting bursts of colors, shapes, and sizes are what I drive to catch, so that when the flower is gone, the art remains." It should be a very enjoyable presentation.
