Artistic Judging & Training
for the Magic Valley Iris Society
The MVIS had the incredible opportunity to host Master Judge Gary Clark for an artistic judging training session on September 9, 2023. He put together 20 show bouquets highlighting the different styles that could be entered in the iris show. Because irises are not in season his designs included chrysanthemums, roses, gladiolus, and greenery. He walked through all the elements that would be judged in a garden or iris show and pointed out ways his own designs met the criteria or would be docked points during judging. Attendees then had the opportunity to design their own arrangements, using vases they brought themselves and flowers provided by the MVIS. The club also provided cheesecake, fruit and chocolate bars.
