The Feb 6th meeting at the Massachusetts Audubon Society Museum of American Bird Art in Canton, MA provided the opportunity to view art portfolios presented by members of the Guild of Natural Science Illustrators – NE (GNSI-NE) and members of the New England Society of Botanical Art (NESBA).
Students and faculty from Massasoit Community College and from Canton High School joined the sharing also. Each school also brought some of their student work for members to look at. This informal gathering was a great opportunity for students and faculty to view portfolios by artists from GNSI_NE and NESBA.
Attendees, moving from table to table, had the opportunity to look closely at the art work and to talk with each artist, ask specific questions about techniques and materials, and the artist’s background, etc.
