This exhibit celebrates a milestone in the contemporary revival of botanical art: the 25th anniversary of the founding of the American Society of Botanical Artists, with which the Reed-Turner group is affiliated. Affiliates and chapters throughout the U.S. and abroad are hosting events in 2019.
Reed-Turner Woodland Botanical Artists was founded in 2005 as a community of artists dedicated to the tradition and contemporary practice of botanical art. Its mission is to further the interests of botanical art, conservation science, botany and horticulture at the local level.
