Artists' reception: "The art of science ... the science of art."

The artists' reception took place on Saturday, Nov. 12 at the Akillian Gallery at Massasoit Community College, Canton, MA. This is a joint exhibition with the New England Society of Botanical Artists, and the Guild of Natural Science Illustrators of New England.

The two organizations have different focuses. A natural science illustrator is an artist who works in the service of science, creating images of animals, objects and complex processes that teach, inform, and create understanding of our world. 

 The New England Society of Botanical Artists works to promote public appreciation of the art and science of botanical art and illustration in New England. The Society educates individuals and organizations about botanical art and illustration with an emphasis on New England plant diversity and its preservation.

The exhibit demonstrates the commonalities in the approaches of the members in both organizations.
