A Celebration of Life: Delicate Watercolors by Wilma Gilmore
In her prime, Willie was an avid gardener and for decades she enjoyed visiting Cornell Plantations, where she was a long-time volunteer and active member and past president of the Auraca Herbarists. Confronting serious ailments, her prolific gardening activities changed from shovel and wheelbarrow to container plantings. Then, in time, her focus shifted to creating these beautiful watercolors of blossoms and fruits which are on display. These delicate paintings were found in a drawer after her passing. They came as a surprise even to her family and close friends. As her beloved husband of over 60 years said, “Perhaps Willie saw the paintings as metaphor for life: blossoming, then fading and dying, as we all do, with youth, maturity, and finally, passing on. It is our good fortune that Willie’s last flower creations, the paintings, her Celebration of Life, are ours to enjoy, forever.” This exhibit will be on display at the Brian C. Nevin Welcome Center at Cornell Plantations. Please note the visitor center is closed on Sunday and Monday. Brian C. Nevin Welcome Center, Cornell Plantations 124 Comstock Knoll Road Ithaca, NY 14850
