Banner art, above, was designed by Alice Debo Fredericy, using art created by OBA members.
After months of planning, the prospectus for our 2021 native plant show is complete. The official title for the exhibit is Wild Treasures: Oregon's Native Plants in Contemporary Botanical Art. Submission of entries begins on January 10 and ends May 1, 2021. A panel of jurors will evaluate entries for botanical accuracy as well as aesthetic merit. There will be cash prizes for award winners.
However, this is more than just an art show. This is a community event that will include activities for OBA members in the months leading up to the show, as well as entertaining and educational events for visitors during the August 2021 exhibit.
Many from our group have already started working on the native plant(s) they plan to enter into the show. You can submit up to 6 entries. If you have any questions about whether a plant is actually an Oregon native, please contact Aislinn Adams, who has many resources to help you with this. See the prospectus for her contact information.
