"A New Enlightenment: Lessons from Botanical Illustration and Printmaking"
Peggy West, certified botanical illustrator and print maker, will share her insights and inspirations from the beautiful world of botanical illustration and printmaking. Illustrated herbals and field guides were among the first printed texts to come off the newly invented printing press in the 15th century. In the 600 years since, detailed plant illustrations have augmented the science and discovery of botany and have left a lasting impression on both art and science. Join us as we journey through this rich and beautiful history on Wednesday, November 9th at 10am in the BCA gallery.
