FROM THE MOUNTAINS TO THE SEA: AN EXHIBIT OF NATIVE NEW ENGLAND PLANT PORTRAITS by NESBA
We are very fortunate to have the New England Society of Botanical Artists (NESBA) “From the Mountains to the Sea” exhibit open here this week at its 6th and final venue, the Bosarge Family Education Center at Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens in Boothbay ME. Everyone is invited to the reception Saturday August 9, 5-7 pm. There will be a live botanical artist demonstration by NESBA and Maine artist Kate MacGillivary at 2 p.m. The exhibit will be on view from August 1 through September 30.
NESBA works to promote public appreciation of the art and science of botanical art and illustration in New England. The Society educates individuals and organizations about botanical art and illustration through exhibits, lectures, workshops, and outreach programs.
Through its art, NESBA emphasizes New England plant diversity and its preservation, provides a community for artists and illustrators engaged in this challenging discipline, designs forums for meetings and discussions, as well as for camaraderie among other botanical artists, illustrators, scientists and historians.
