Margot Glass - one of the artists whose work is being exhibited in the 16th International at the Hunt - wrote to tell me about another exhibition, in New York, which also includes her work.

CENTRAL BOOKING in collaboration with Brooklyn Botanic Garden.

1 University Plaza, Brooklyn, NY 11201
Dates: September 3 - December 13. 2019

Catalogue (available on MagCloud): Plant Cure/Brooklyn Catalog
Plant Cure project continuing with group exhibit of medicinal plant-themed work. Five artists, who were artists in residence at Brooklyn Botanic Garden in the spring of 2019 are joined by additional artists working with the them of medicinal plants. Exhibit includes four watercolors and two ceramic sculptures, which were inspired by research during the Brooklyn Botanic Garden residency. Additional exhibit/project-related events upcoming.
One of Margot's small dandelion drawings is being exhibited. One of her drawings also appears on the cover of Plant Cure Brooklyn exhibition catalogue published by the New York Academy of Medicine and Central Booking. It is the cover image for the Plant Cure Brooklyn catalogue as well.
Another is currently being exhibited in the 16th International Exhibition of Botanical Art at the Hunt Institute of Botanical Documentation in Pittsburgh. I guess I'm probably going to be meeting Margaret next week at the Artists' Reception!
The Plant Cure project began in 2017 with a collaboration of CENTRAL BOOKING with the New York Academy of Medicine (NYAM), a research library with extensive medical and science collections. Five artists were chosen by Maddy Rosenberg for Artists in Residence at NYAM to research their work for an exhibition in CENTRAL BOOKING’s space. Various documentation of their process was also displayed in vitrines in the NYAM library. Fourteen additional artists were curated into the CENTRAL BOOKING exhibition and were involved with programming as well.
The other artists participating in the exhibition are: Desiree Alvarez, Cynthia Beck, C Bangs, Marisa Benjamin, Tessa Grundon, James Martin, Agnes Murray, Maddy Rosenberg, Susan Rostow, Sarah Stengle, Kate Temple, Amanda Thackray, May Ting and James Walsh.
This is Tessa Grundon's exhibit about Medicinal Plants and creating tinctures of a place
ABOUT MARGOT GLASS: Margot Glass grew up in New York City, and studied art at The Art Students' League, Brown University, Rhode Island School of Design, and Fashion Institute of Technology. Her work explores the ephemeral through still life, nature and botany, text and communication. She has exhibited widely in New York and elsewhere in the USA. Her work is on the front cover of exhibition catalogue and the "Magic Plants" Summer 2019 edition of Orion Magazine. Glass works in graphite on paper and also adds gold, using a stylus to carefully apply gold particles to her prepared paper - making it impossible to erase any mistakes.
"Margot Glass focuses on drawing grasses, weeds, and other plants considered mundane or undesireable to illuminate the hidden beauty in overlooked natural subjects, elevating them through close examination. Her choise to work in gold point and graphite allows for the play of light on the line to enhance the ornamental delicacy and ephemeral quality of the natural forms she draws."
ABOUT CENTRAL BOOKING: A place for artist's books and prints and their integration into the larger art world; group exhibitions on art & science; related programming.
ABOUT BROOKLYN BOTANIC GARDEN: A 52 acre botanical garden in the borough of Brooklyn in New York City. Founded in 1910 and located in Mount Prospect Park, next to Prospect Park and the Brooklyn Museum
