Karen and I helped Marni with her exhibit this year. I took a few pictures before the throngs of visitors came in on Friday night. The lighting is quite challenging and I am only an amateur photographer, but I want to show these for those who wanted to but were not able to attend POE. Marni took a different approach to her exhibit this year than in previous years; she used nearly every blooming plant in her greenhouses! The black backdrop really made the orchids pop and we set up some serious lighting to make sure all the orchids were well-lit. A large curved section of vertical hardware cloth painted black was a clever way to display mounted plants in a way that more people could look at them simultaneously and gave it an inviting 3-D aspect. One could have spent the entire POE exploring all the the fascinating species in it. There was 3-4x more species diversity in Marni's display than in any other single exhibit at the show. I think it was a great success. In many cases Marni brought multiple examples of some species for greater impact. There was something there for everyone: dendrobiums, pleurothallids, angraecoids, vandaceous, phalaenopsis, lycastes, epidendroids, terrestrials, from super miniatures to giants - all rare, beautiful and expertly-grown. I have more pictures in my flickr photostream, and Peter (mini-catts) has a great series of photos of POE, I also recommend checking it out. If anyone else has more pictures of the plants in Marni's exhibit, please feel free to add them to this thread.
