General Minutes for New England Society of Botanical Artists

General Minutes for New England Society of Botanical Artists May 4th, 2013 Meeting at the Museum of American Bird Art at Mass Audubon, Canton, MA. 



NESBA board members met at 9:00 am till 10:30, after which time they were joined by other members for some refreshments provided by Joan Pierce, and a rare opportunity to view a collection of New England bird decoys. In addition, one of our hosts, Amy, brought members downstairs to view original works by artists such as Audubon and Mark Catesby. Another member of the museum team, Julienne, provided an interesting history of the publication of “Illustrations of the Nests and Eggs of Birds of Ohio”. The group was able to view several examples of the exquisite nests and eggs that Genevieve Jones, her friends and family sketched and colored during the late 1800’s.

It was a beautiful day in Canton, and NESBA members enjoyed viewing and learning about several unique examples of bird art at the museum!
