16th International exhibition begins

17 September 2019

Our 16th International Exhibition of Botanical Art & Illustration begins today and runs through 18 December 2019. The reception will be held on 17 October 2019 to coincide with the American Society of Botanical Artists conference. Stop by this month for a first look at this incredible show that features 41 artworks by 41 artists who reside in 14 countries. Come back in October for the reception where you can meet some of the 16th artists and perhaps ask them to autograph your copy of the accompanying exhibition catalogue. Anyone wishing to purchase a catalogue can do so at the Institute or using the order form on our Web site. The catalogue is available also as the Catalogue of the International Exhibition of Botanical Art & Illustration database.
