Selected by jurors Patricia Jonas, Kathie Miranda, and Derek Norman from a field of 200 submissions, the forty-one artworks on view have been created by artists from the US, UK, Japan, Australia, Brazil, and Canada.
In this year’s exhibition, familiar plant life is displayed along with strange and interesting exotics in a broad range of media, including: a Crested Myrtillo in ink; a hand-colored etching of an apple branch; Indian Hemp in watercolor; Floribunda Rose in egg tempera; and Porcelain Berry Vine in oil.
