Description:
February 13, 7-9 p.m. – Lewis and Clark Library Large Meeting Room - Botanical Art & Illustration. For centuries art has been an essential companion to botany as a means of communicating botanical information and aiding plant identification. In the process, botanical art has also developed as an aesthetic tradition of its own. Kelsey Chapter member and botanical artist, Jane Fournier, will explain how art and botany have supported each other, from early times, through the so called “golden age” of botanical art, and in more modern times. The program will also look at the process, from concept to finished plate for a typical botanical drawing or painting. (This is the first of a two-part program. A hands-on session will be held March 6 at the same time and location)
