Pollinators: Art by Tropical Botanic Artists

Pollinators: Art by Tropical Botanic Artists

Art Show
This exhibition of original works of art emphasizes the variety and variability of creatures that pollinate South Florida’s abundant plant life. Focusing on these complex natural relationships, members of the Tropical Botanic Artists collective illustrated birds, butterflies, moths, bees, wasps-- even aquatic zooplankton—with the plants they pollinate. Informative labels accompany the works.
The critical role of pollinators is familiar to commercial farmers and home gardeners alike. In South Florida’s remaining uncultivated places–pine rocklands, hardwood hammocks, watery glades, and coastal mangroves–the connection between plants and their pollinators is crucial. These co-dependent relationships, though not always obvious, can be extremely strong. Without one, the other will not survive. Exhibition is open Wed.-Sun. 10am-5pm
About Tropical Botanic Artists.
Artists with works in the Pollinators exhibition are Margie Bauer, Beverly Borland, Kristi Bettendorf, Silvia Bota, Morella Camejo, Marie Chaney, Susan Cumins, Jeanie Duck, Julio J. Figueroa, Pauline A. Goldsmith, Leo Hernandez, Carol Ann Lane, Elsa Nadal, Laurie Richardson, Donna Torres, and Jedda Wong. All are residents of South Florida. The Tropical Botanic Artists collective was established in Miami, Florida, in 2006 to highlight the beauty of tropical plants through art. Its members come from all walks of life and each brings a unique viewpoint to his or her work. They share a love of the natural world and that fascination is reflected in their art. www.tropicalbotanicartists.com
