Plant Portraits: Native Plants of Canada (May 18 - October 31, 2018)
<< Prev | Next >>
May 18 - October 31, 2018

Presented in partnership with the Ottawa Society of Botanical Artists (OSBA), Plant Portraits: Native Plants of Canada is an impressive collection of modern, botanical art. Through more than 30 original artworks – in watercolour, graphite, and mixed media – the exhibition examines our native plants as seen through the eyes of artists. Many of the plant subjects are from the Ottawa region – including the Fletcher Wildlife Garden – and as far away as British Columbia. The exhibition includes a commissioned sculpture from celebrated local sculptor Rosemary Breault-Landry, and will feature tours and workshops. Throughout the summer, a group of OSBA members will be venturing out to two of Ottawa's foremost urban gardens – the Ornamental Gardens at the Central Experimental Farm and the Civic Gardens at Lansdowne Park – to enjoy a morning of sketching. The public is welcome to attend and pose questions to the artists.
