In 2012 artist and educator Estelle DeRidder was awarded an education grant to create identification cards about the flora of the Madrona Marsh Preserve in Torrance, CA. Her project is now complete and the exhibition featuring Estelle’s original paintings has traveled from the marsh to inland California.
The Flora of the Madrona Marsh will feature the original paintings created for the project. The exhibition will be on view at the La Crescenta Public Library January 24 – February 28, 2015.
When the exhibition opens tomorrow, Estelle will present a PowerPoint presentation about the botanical illustration process. You are invited to learn about botanical illustration and how Estelle completed her botanical study at Madrona Marsh.
The opening of The Flora of the Madrona Marsh will be held Saturday, January 24, 2015 from 2-4 PM. The La Crescenta Public Library is located at 2809 Foothill Blvd, La Crescenta, CA 91214 (map).
