The Florida Society of Botanical Artists invite you to their new exhibition!
Botanical art is enjoying a renaissance and, although it often depicts far-flung marvels of the botanical world, this juried exhibition of fifteen contemporary practitioners illustrates some common and uncommon plants people have used for food both in the past and the present.
The role of botanical art is to blend the scientific study of plants with artistic presentation. The 38 works in Edible Plants Illustrated were created using watercolor, colored pencil, graphite and silverpoint, and show the wide range of media employed by today’s botanical artists.
Founded in 2005, the Florida Society of Botanical Artists (FSBA) is a chapter of the American Society of Botanical Artists.
Meet the artists this Friday at the opening reception. A reception will be held on April 13, 2012 from 5-7 PM at the Venice Art Center.
