31(2) Bulletin published
10 December 2019
This issue of the Bulletin chronicles the journey of another year of contributions, fellowship and support. Of the 41 artists in our 16th International, 21 traveled to Pittsburgh for the reception, where they were joined by members of the American Society of Botanical Artists. Collections journeyed to our Archives while Library books migrated to our Web site. We thank our 2019 Sponsors for making the trip with us, providing monetary support and contributing materials to the collections. Our Librarian wandered in the desert, finding fellowship, saguaro and a very grand canyon. Our Director and Librarian were awarded for making the long journey with us while we bade farewell to another long-time staff member.
