All Things Bright and Beautiful

The Sewanee Herbarium is sponsoring a community botanical art exhibit at Stirling’s Coffeehouse February 23-March 21. Titled “All Things Bright and Beautiful,” it opens with a reception 3:30-5:30 Friday, February 23.

The show is the latest in the herbarium’s ongoing effort to cultivate connections between people and plants. According to Dr. Jon Evans, Sewanee Herbarium Director, “Plants are of great value to us all. We interact with them on a daily if not hourly basis and yet we are often ‘blind’ to their existence around us. One of the objectives of the Sewanee Herbarium is to raise awareness of plants among the student body and within the community. In this not-so-green time of year, we hope to awaken your enthusiasm for plants by featuring works of art at Stirlings that celebrate the botanical world.”

The exhibit encompasses a variety of interpretations of botanical art in a range of media. Works include nature journal entries, cut paper, mixed media, stitchery, drawing, and painting. Artists are Sewanee students, community members, and friends. Some of the works will be offered for sale. For more information, contact marypriestley@bellsouth.net.
