VIRGINIA BOTANICAL ARTISTS
April 8 - May 2, 2020

Botanical illustration is the art of depicting the form, color, and details of a plant species. Unlike floral art, which often incorporates added compositional features such as vases, bowls, backgrounds, or garden scenes, botanical illustration is void of such distractions. Plants are depicted in a concise manner – often against a white background – detailing specific botanical aspects such as the structure, growth habit, and life cycle of the plant with great accuracy while still capturing the beauty of the subject.
Artists included in this online gallery have exhibited widely in juried and invitational shows across the mid-Atlantic region. Many focus on plants native to the region.
