In 2012 California artist and educator Estelle De Ridder was awarded an education grant from the American Society of Botanical Artists to create plant identification cards about the plants at the Madrona Marsh Preserve
in Torrance, CA. This project is now complete and will be presented in conjunction with an exhibition of Estelle’s original paintings.
The Madrona Marsh Preserve, in collaboration with the American Society of Botanical Artists, invites you to The Flora of the Madrona Marsh, an exhibition of botanical art by Estelle DeRidder, November 18, 2014 – January 9, 2015.
An opening reception will be held on Sunday, December 7, 2014 from 2-5 pm.
During the month of December, visitors to Madrona Marsh will have three opportunities to meet Estelle and to learn about the role botanical illustration plays in our understanding of plants.
Residents of inland southern California will have the opportunity to view this exhibition when it travels to the La Crescenta Public Library in La Crescenta, CA (January 24 – February 28, 2015).
