Lecture: Conservation and the Power of Contemporary Botanical Art

Join Carol Woodin, exhibitions director for the American Society of Botanical Artists (ASBA), for a discussion about illustrator and environmentalist Margaret Mee and how contemporary botanical art has the power to inform and empower us to face important environmental issues.

Carol Woodin is an internationally exhibited freelance illustrator and the exhibitions director for the ASBA. Her passion and expertise draw from a lifelong love for orchids and rare wildflowers and an exploration of the natural diversity found at home in the Hudson Valley. Her work is in the collections of the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, and the Smithsonian Institution, among others. She recently co-edited the book "Botanical Art Techniques: A Comprehensive Guide," published by ASBA and Timber Press.

Stay after Woodin's talk to celebrate the graduates from our 2022 School of Botanical Art & Illustration cohort (1:30-2:30 p.m.) and visit our galleries to see the fall exhibitions, including the ASBA juried show Abundant Future: Cultivating Diversity in Garden, Farm and Field.
