Hunt Institute for Botanical Documentation


Elements exhibition opens tonight

19 March 2015

Join us tonight from 5 to 7 p.m. for the opening reception of our spring exhibition, Elements. This exhibition features drawings and watercolors of bird nests with a focus on the natural and man-made materials incorporated into these architectural structures. The artists are Sue Abramson, Wendy Brockman, David Morrison and Kate Nessler. Beginning at 5:30 p.m. each of the four artists will introduce their work in the exhibition. This is an excellent opportunity to meet all of the artists. The reception is free and open to the public.
