March Meeting: Botanical Art: A Continuing Tradition

  • 21 Mar 2019
  • 9:30 AM
  • Taos Tennis Meeting Room, 88 State Highway 150, El Prado

Our speaker at the March meeting is Deborah Baldwin Fair who will introduce us to botanical art.

This is an American Society of Botanical Artists (ASBA) presentation.  ASBA member, Deborah Baldwin Fair will bring this program, which includes beautiful examples of botanical art depicting flora from ancient Egyptian artifacts, through the centuries of botanical art, to work by some of the most award-winning contemporary botanical artists.  Included will be a discussion of why botanical art matters to gardeners and botanists, and what makes for fine botanical art as opposed to art with floral themes.

Deb Fair holds a Doctor of Ministry in the Arts and Theology, and recently began studying and practicing botanical art, earning a Certificate of Botanical Illustration from the Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens in Richmond Virginia in 2015.

The social time will start at 9:30 am and the meeting and speaker will follow at 10:00 am.  If you have questions please email ljtaosnm1949@gmail.com or call Kathy Fortner at (575)770-0243.
