Fells exhibit closes after a well-received show of the native plants of New England.

Thank you to Nancy Horrall, Judith Baker and Lois Jackson for taking down the show in New Hampshire this past Monday, July 23.

Congratulations to Carrie Megan!

Carrie Megan's watercolor on vellum of Ailanthus altissima, Tree of Heaven, has been accepted by the Hunt Institute for Botanical Documentation for its 14th Annual International Exhibition of Botanical Art & Illustration.

The Institute established the International series in 1964 with the hope of supporting and encouraging contemporary botanical artists. Every three years, the International series features the works of talented botanical artists from around the world. The exhibit will be hung in 2013 and coincides with the ASBA Conference to be held in Pittsburgh that year. This is a great honor for a botanical artist! Congratulations to Carrie!
