Katy Gilmore ~ Earth Apparelled with Plants:

Watercolors, Artists’ Books, and Hand-Colored Prints

May 2 – 30, 2024

June Meadow Flowers by Katy Gilmore

From the artist’s statement:

For the title of this exhibition, I used a phrase from John Gerard’s “Dedicatorie” to his Herball, originally published in 1597: “…what greater delight is there than to behold the earth apparelled with plants?” And I hope my pieces for this exhibition honor that thought. There are big watercolor paintings of meadow flowers, drawn and painted from life in season, and 24 hand-colored prints of watercolors of flowers from my garden, painted from January to December of 2023. Also included are 20 “Pockets Books,” a winter project, illuminating that “greater delight” and also being a nod to libraries – to the Miller Library in particular – a rich resource of horticulture books about the earth “apparelled with plants.”
