The Art of Orchids

Annual Orchid Society Show

The Orchid Society of Western Pennsylvania ( OSWP) will hold its annual orchid show on Saturday,March 16,2019,from 10am to 5pm, and Sunday,March 17,2019, from 10am to 4pm. This year, for the first time, the show will be held at The Artsmiths of Pittsburgh, 1635 McFarland Road, Mt. Lebanon,15216. The show is open to the public, and admission is free, although voluntary donations at the door are greatly appreciated. This year’s theme, The Art of Orchids, is a nod both to our gallery venue,and the breathtaking beauty, variety and quantity of orchids displayed in the show. Visitors will be inspired by the beautifully crafted displays of live blooming orchids. Society members and expert orchid growers will be available to provide information about growing orchids, and free educational seminars will be held throughout both days of the show. In addition, an hourly raffle of orchid plants and orchid related items will be held. One of the most popular features of the show is the Sales Area, where one may purchase orchids from a wide range of vendors from the eastern United States. Many plants are perfect for the beginning orchid grower, and there is also a large selection of rare and unusual orchids for the more adventurous grower. This years show will again offer the very popular Repotting Table, where one may bring their orchids from home for some expert repotting by OSWP members. Visitors may watch and learn as their plants are being repotted. Advice is free, and the average price for repotting a 6 inch or less pot is $5. Larger or complicated repotting is priced on a case-by-case basis. Photographer’s Opportunity : Sunday 9am to 10am, prior to opening for the general public, photographers are welcome access the displays during a quiet time. The orchid show is part of OSWP’s educational mission, and is always well attended. For more information,visit www.oswp.org.
