Gifts from Japan: A Horticultural Tale Told through Botanical Art
Exhibit in the Pavilion at the Portland Japanese Garden
611 SW Kingston Ave, Portland, Oregon 97205
May 14 - July 4, 2022
Several OBA members will have their work shown in this special exhibit organized in cooperation with the Huntington Library, Art Museum and Botanical Gardens in California and the Portland Japanese Garden.
“Gifts from Japan” illuminates the unique stories of many plants now widely grown throughout the world that originated in Japan. The exhibition invites visitors on a journey of evolving cultures, horticultural technologies, and botanical art from the turn of the 20th century to contemporary times, featuring richly rendered botanical illustrations from The Huntington Library, Art Museum, and Botanical Gardens (CA); guest botanical artists from Japan; and the following American Society of Botanical Artists chapters and artists' circles— the Botanical Artists Guild of Southern California, the Pacific Northwest Botanical Artists, and the Oregon Botanical Artists.
