16th International reception image gallery
23 October 2019
We would like to thank our International artists, the American Society of Botanical Artists conference attendees and the many friends of the Institute who joined us on Thursday, 17 October 2019, for the reception of our 16th International Exhibition of Botanical Art & Illustration. It is always gratifying to see so many like-minded people gathered to support and appreciate botanical art, artists and the Institute. Graphics Manager Frank A. Reynolds was on the scene to capture their excitement. In the following galleries of images and a video you can relive the event or experience it if you were unable to attend.
On Friday, 18 October 2019, the conference attendees returned to the Institute for a lecture on florilegia by Assistant Librarian Jeannette McDevitt and a Q&A with the 16th International artists moderated by Curator of Art Lugene B. Bruno and Assistant Curator of Art Carrie Roy.
A more extensive article about the 16th International will be in our forthcoming fall Bulletin. Sign up for our emailing list to receive an announcement when the issue is published online.
