American Society of Botanical Artists and The Horticultural Society of New York present the 18th Annual International Exhibit

November 04 – December 30, 2015

Our longest-running collaboration, this prestigious exhibition will be held at the New York Design Center, 200 Lexington Avenue, New York, NY in midtown Manhattan. New York’s premier showcase of contemporary botanical art opens November 4, featuring some of the genre’s most established artists alongside emerging talents. Artworks were selected from 234 submissions by jurors Susan Fraser, David Horak, and Catherine Watters. The forty-four works are by artists from the United States, Australia, Canada, Japan, The Netherlands, Russia, and the UK.

The broad range of styles and subject matter bring to light the rebirth and vitality of the genre, and leave one excitedly anticipating what’s to come. The American Society of Botanical Artists has a membership of over 1,300 from the United States and 25 other countries. Its mission is to promote public awareness of botanical art, honor its traditions and further its development. The Horticultural Society of New York’s Gallery encourages gardeners and artists alike to appreciate the creative intersection between art and nature with exhibitions that showcase emerging and established contemporary artists inspired by horticulture, botany, landscape, and the environment.
