The Folk Tree has the art of romance boiled down to a science — or is it the other way around?

Its 23rd annual Hearts & Flowers Exhibition runs through Feb. 20, with love and all its requisite — and some unexpected — symbols the focus of the show.

Expect a variety of mediums, including jewelry, as 50 local artists display their works. Small-scale decorative works and whimsical objects are balanced against emotionally-charged pieces reflecting the ups and downs of love.

An array of related Mexican folk art is also on view, including ceramic figures, repousse hearts cut from tin, and paper and cornhusk flowers.

Lots more amazing photos after the jump.
