Join in a celebration of the beauty of nature at this juried exhibition by the Southwest Society of Botanical Artists (SWSBA). Examine the works close-up to explore the intricacy and beauty of flora and fauna.
The exhibit includes sixty works in a variety of mediums by local artists. Many of the works include plants native to Arizona in celebration of the state's Centennial Year, as well as plants of other locales, and creatures of the natural world.
SWSBA is the Arizona chapter of the American Society of Botanical Artists. Members have backgrounds in fine arts, graphic arts, business, technology, and education, but they all share a love of the natural world, especially plants.
