Carol Ashton-Hergenhan reveals the beauty of plant life cycles in
Florescence, Senescence and Regeneration: The Work of Carol Ashton-Hergenhan.
This exhibition will be on view at Twenty-Two Gallery in Philadelphia from
June 12 – July 2, 2015.
Twenty-Two Gallery states:
This show continues (Carol’s) exploration of the cycle of plants from Florescence when the plant attracts pollinators to continue its species, through Senescence as the aging plant struggles to continue its own existence in preparation for a future generation, to Regeneration, when the species starts anew and the cycle begins again.

Her painting of Allium sphaerocephalon (Hairy Drumstick Allium) is currently touring the country in Weird, Wild & Wonderful, a traveling exhibition curated by the American Society of Botanical Artists.
