Art Exhibits in the Library

7th Annual Pacific Northwest Botanical Artists’ Exhibit

art by Sylvia Portillo

Fragaria x ananassa by Sylvia Portillo

As spring revives our parks and gardens, come and enjoy an exhibit of botanical art.

Visit this display of original paintings and prints from April 4 through May 3. Artwork, prints and cards will be for sale, with a portion of the sales benefiting the Library.

PNBA is a chapter of the American Society of Botanical Artists, a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting public awareness of contemporary botanical art, to honoring its traditions, and to furthering its development. This year PNBA has invited members of the local chapter of the Guild of Natural Science Illustrators to join in the exhibit.

For more information on PNBA please visit: www.pnba-artists.com and GNSINW at www.gnsinw.org
