January 26, 2019 - April 14, 2019
American Society of Botanical Artists and the New York Botanical Gardens
This Exhibition features fourty-four artworks, from artists from all over the country, and depicts one of the planets most important and beautiful resources. These tree subjects have been found in botanical gardens and arboreta throughout the US and around the world. A central goal with the exhibition is to highlight the role botanical gardens and arboreta play in education the public about trees and their ecological and utilitarian roles, as well as the research/scholarship they do in these areas. However, artists also respond aesthetically to these inspiring subjects, and have depicted anything from seedpods to branches and bark to an entire forest floor.
This exhibit will be located in The Legacy and Porter Hall Galleries.
