NOTE NEW TIME: BAGSC June Quarterly Meeting with special guest Sarah Morrish

All BAGSC members are cordially invited to our next quarterly meeting on June 8 at 11:30 am Pacific Daylight Time.


After a brief business meeting we will have a presentation and demonstration by our very special guest, Sarah Morrish. Please note the change in time from our usual schedule to accommodate Sarah’s teaching schedule and international time zones.


A note to all from Sarah:

"I look forward to joining you all on the 8th June. I will be sharing an overview of my artistic journey and the important part that ecology has played within it and continues still to do so. Then I will share with you my thoughts on the place of pen and ink in present day botanical art; the different ways that I use pen and ink; materials and equipment; as well as demonstrating some of the techniques I utilize. The subject for the demonstration will originate from the Pedunculate oak/English oak Quercus robur and may well include some Oak galls. There will also be time for Q&As.”
