A special nod goes to the Take Down Team for braving downpours (and an unconfirmed report of donut holes!)

We also want to share with you this email to Nancy Horrall from The Fells Education Director, Michael J. Caduto:

Hi Nancy:

Thank you all very much for the help with putting up and taking down the exhibit. It was a very popular show that generated much enthusiasm among those who visited the gallery. It was especially meaningful to be able to show such beautiful pieces depicting species that grow in The Fells rock garden.

Please convey our hearfelt thanks to all of the artists involved for giving of their talent and time to make this exhibit possible.
Let's keep in touch regarding your idea for a future exhibit about native plants of New England.

Meanwhile: Think Cool!

From the Mountains to the Sea: 
Plants, Trees, and Shrubs of New England

The New England Society of Botanical Artists (NESBA) will produce an exhibition of native New England plants to promote awareness and celebrate the diversity and beauty of plants from our own backyards. This juried exhibition will include approximately 45 original artworks in 2 framed sizes 24” x 18” and 30” x 24” and will travel to each New England state (venues and dates to be determined).

Subject listing: Although not required, you may notify NESBA of the plant(s) you intend to portray. An informal list will be posted. We would like to have plants representing a wide variety of genera and habitats of New England. We will post some links to sites giving you a list of native New England plants to consider. This exhibit will be curated according to scientific accuracy, aesthetics, and technical mastery.
