Galaudet Gallery, at 618 S. Farwell St., is open noon to 8 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday and by appointment Monday and Tuesday. The current exhibition is "Naked Flowers: Poetry Revealed."

The art exhibit "Naked Flowers: Poetry Revealed" can be seen through June 10 at Galaudet Gallery, 618 S. Farwell St.

Visitors to the gallery can see inside X-rayed flowers, read a poem flower, and enjoy abstracted and Americana flowers.

Naked flowers are both X-rayed flowers and collaged flowers. X-ray flowers are radiograph photographs revealing the inside of flowers.

Poem flowers are meant to be read. The art form began as a subset of altered books and artist books, which use books as a source material and as art forms.

The Americana flowers in the show come from folk artists and botanical artists.

The gallery is open from noon to 8 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday by appointment Monday and Tuesday.
