Hunt Institute for Botanical Documentation


15th International Exhibition begins

15 September 2016

Our 15th International Exhibition of Botanical Art & Illustration begins today and runs through 15 December 2016. The reception will be held on 13 October 2016 to coincide with the American Society of Botanical Artists conference. Stop by this month for a first look at this incredible show that features 43 artworks by 43 artists who are citizens of 15 countries. Come back in October for the reception where you can meet some of the 15th artists and perhaps ask them to autograph your copy of the accompanying exhibition catalogue. Any 2016 Hunt Institute Associates wishing to do so can pick up their exhibition catalogues in our front office now. Otherwise we will distribute Associate copies at the reception and begin mailing the rest the following week. Anyone wishing to purchase a catalogue can do so at the Institute or using the order form on our Web site.
