20th Annual International American Society of Botanical Artists Exhibition Opening

On Wednesday, November 8, the New York Design Center hosted the opening reception of the 20th Anniversary Annual International Exhibition. Curated by the American Society of Botanical Artists, the exhibition showcases some of the most notable contemporary botanical artwork from emerging and well-known artists around the world. The jury team of jurors Susan Fraser, Director, Mertz Library, The New York Botanical Garden; David Horak, Curator of the Aquatic House, Brooklyn Botanic Garden, and Esther Klahne, Botanical Artist, met in May at The New York Botanical Garden to select forty-six works from a highly competitive field of over 200 submissions. We are happy to announce included artists are from the US, Australia, France, Germany, Japan, Slovenia, and the UK, and selected artworks feature flowers, fruits, trees, and edibles from all seasons.

Catalogs are available for purchase. The exhibition will be on view at the 1stdibs Gallery on the 10th floor through December 21, 2017.
