Why Botanical Art?

             Amethystine Memories by Linda Bourgault

Botanical art creates an awareness of plant life in various forms.  Plants are a living art form and many talented artists acknowledge the power of plant life and it’s beauty. However, botanical artists have the ability through their work to capture in an image or painting what most can not see by viewing a plants outer appearance. The botanical art tradition combines science and art. Botanical artists seek to understand the structure of plants and to communicate this knowledge to their audience in an aesthetically pleasing manner.

K. A. S. Gallery is exhibiting  a variety of national and international botanical artists at Mellwood Art Center, from May 13Th to June 24Th.  An art reception will be held on May 27Th, 6:30 -9 p.m.
