BAGSC members will be participating in a wonderful opportunity at the Getty this summer. To complement the Getty‘s “Gardens of the Renaissance,” BAGSC members will be demonstrating botanical art in a variety of media at the Artist-at-Work Demonstration: Botanical Drawing.
Join us in the Central Garden as we demonstrate the materials and techniques used to render plants and flowers. Learn about the botany of fruits, vegetables, and spices, and how explorations in the New World changed dinner tables around Europe. See the “Gardens of the Renaissance” exhibition, and explore Renaissance gardens and their stories (from scandalous to virtuous) in this beautiful exhibition of illuminated manuscripts. Meet botanical artists, ask questions, and get close to the action as you learn about materials and techniques seen in works of art on display at the Getty Center.
This is a free, drop-in program: Sunday, July 7 & 21, and August 4 & 11, 2013 12:30–2:30 p.m.
Participating BAGSC artists (on various days) include: Tania Marien, Deborah Shaw, Linda Erickson, Cristina Baltayian, Patty Van Ousterhoudt, Suzanne Kuuskmae, Jan Clouse, Arillyn Moran-Lawrence, Akiko Enokido, Lori Vreeke, Estelle DeRidder, Tania Norris, Alyse Ochniak, Leslie Walker, and Patricia Mark.
