The American Society of Botanical Artists launches the 15th Annual International Juried Botanical Art Exhibition at The Horticultural Society of New York later today with an opening reception that begins at 6 PM.

One of the world’s premier venues for botanical art, this exhibition showcases the artwork of both established and emerging botanical artists. Artists from the United States, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Japan and the United Kingdom submitted 192 works to jurors Patricia Jonas, Kathie Miranda and Derek Norman. Forty-three artworks were selected for the exhibition and these pieces will be on view through November 21, 2012.

Visitors will be inspired by artwork created in watercolor, graphite, ink and colored pencil, as well as in media seen less often in botanical art exhibitions (hand-colored aquatint etching, silverpoint, polymer plate etching, and oil).

Workshops and painting demonstrations will be held during the exhibition.
Add these dates to your calendar!

The Gallery at The Hort is free and open to the public Monday through Friday, 10 AM to 6 PM. The Horticultural Society of New York is located at 148 West 37th Street, 13th Floor, New York, NY 10018-6909. (Map)

Today I want to follow-up last week’s article about art and botany needing each other, with an example of how the disciplines of art and botany can work together to change the way people experience a local park.

When artist and art director, Ken Chaya, was asked to make a map about the trees and landscapes of Central Park, little did he know he was about to become a botanist, an experienced hiker, and become intimately familiar with every square foot of New York’s famous park.

Over a two-year period, Chaya learned how to identify trees, created symbols for every major tree species, walked more than 500 miles, and represented 19,630 trees on a single sheet of paper to create the most accurate and detailed map ever published about Central Park.

Chaya tells his story at CentralParkNature and provides a behind-the-scenes look at how he created Central Park Entire, The Definitive Illustrated Map.

In six short documentary-style videos, Chaya explains how he learned to identify 172 species of trees, how he mapped every path in the park, and what he learned while creating the illustrations for his map.

Here is a great example of art and botany in action!

Chaya’s map is available as a wall poster ($35) and as a folded map ($12.95). Quantity discounts are available.
