Illustrating Hidden Treasures: Exhibition of Botanical Art by Wendy Hollender
For the past seventeen years, artist Wendy Hollender's work has focused exclusively on plants. Her interest in understanding how plants function informs the botanically correct illustrations she creates. This exhibition presents drawings featured in magazines, advertisements and a book about wild edible plants titled Foraging and Feasting: A Field Guide and Wild Food Cookbook, co-published by Hollender and author Dina Falconi.
Illustrating Hidden Treasures was first presented at the United States Botanic Garden in Washington, D.C. Botanist, Susan Pell, Science and Public Programs Manager at USBG, curated the exhibition. It was on view at The Ashokan Center in Fall 2016. The exhibition is a group of 16 large giclee prints. Each print is enlarged proportionally to 41 inches in size making this work dramatic and informative. The prints use archival inks and are printed on acid free canvas. The hanging system is unique, with handmade walnut strips that are held together with magnets. Prints are available for purchase. Inquiries: email@example.com
