A new exhibition of botanical drawings and paintings documenting the plants of the Gardens of Alcatraz has been announced - and opened last week!
Details are below and you can see more pictures of the exhibit on the Facebook Page of the Northern California Society of Botanical Artists who organise the development of the Florilegium
The exhibition includes 127 works of art depicting a variety of “survivor” plants growing on the island. They were created by 77 NCalSBA artists and selected for the exhibition by a jury.
Venue: Prison Band Rehearsal Room, Alcatraz Island
Dates: September 16th 2017 - January 17th 2018
Organised by: a project of Northern California Society of Botanical Artists (NCalSBA) in collaboration with the Garden Conservancy
Below is the Alcatraz Island Florilegium Committee - Catherine Watters, Sally Petru, and Lyn Dahl
The Gardens of Alcatraz were restored by three organisations working together with much support from dedicated volunteers. In 2003, the Garden Conservancy, Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy and National Park Service began their collaboration to restore the historic gardens. As every gardener knows the work to plant and prune, compost and weed, restore and maintain the gardens never ends!
