This exhibition celebrates trees, mostly growing in the Bay Area, and focuses on aspects from the whole tree to details such as a branch, bark, leaves, seed pods, or fruit. The exhibit will honor the beautiful trees around us, featuring interesting details of each season.
The Northern California Society of Botanical Artists is an association dedicated to supporting botanical artists. We also wish to increase public awareness of this art form and an appreciation for historical and contemporary botanical art in the communities of Northern California. Our art form serves to help educate the public on plant diversity, regional plant ecology and the rationale for preservation of plant species.
We are a regional chapter of the American Society of Botanical Artists (ASBA). We hold a variety of events throughout the year, beginning with an exhibition of members work at UC Berkeley Botanical Garden in January.
