BOTANICAL ART & ILLUSTRATION: Combining Art and Science

Botanical art presents plants in scientifically accurate detail to the benefit of both scientists and art lovers. Club member and amateur botanical artist, Chris Cheney, will present the history of botanical art, as well as the beauty of the contemporary art form today. This exquisite body of art dates back to the very beginnings of printing. Growing from the tradition of the great explorers/artists, botanical art was also considered an “appropriate” genre for female artists of past centuries.
