Remarkable Trees is a local, BAGSC-sponsored exhibition being held in conjunction with The Third New York Botanical Garden Triennial Out of the Woods: Celebrating Trees in Public Gardens. The Out of the Woods Triennial will be displayed in the Brody Botanical Center, Flora Legium Gallery at The Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens from May 19 – August 27, 2018.
BAGSC artists are invited to submit unique or inspirational trees in public botanical gardens for Remarkable Trees, per the original ASBA entry guidelines for Out of the Woods. Out of the Woods and Remarkable Trees seek to highlight the role of botanical gardens and arboreta in educating the public about trees, their ecological and utilitarian roles, and the research botanical gardens contributes to our understanding. Artists depictions may include any season, or the aspect of the tree the artist finds most engaging. Each entry will include the location of the entered tree.
The BAGSC adjunct exhibition, Remarkable Trees will run from May 19, 2018 to August 27, 2018 and will be hung on the walls of the main lobby of the Brody Botanical Center at The Huntington.
BAGSC members will be available throughout both exhibitions for botanical art demonstrations and family-friendly activities in the lobby Brody Botanical Center. Times and events will be posted on BAGSC News, the BAGSC blog. The ASBA's Out of the Woods catalog will be available for sale in The Huntington's bookstore.
Entries are due no later than April 27, 2018. See the "Call for Entries" page in the "Members Only" section for further details.
This exhibition celebrates the orchid family. Orchidaceae are one of the two largest families of flowering plants, diverse, widespread, sometimes colorful, sometimes fragrant, and sometimes bizarre.
