An exciting exhibition of botanical art, Ellas Ilustran Botánica, opens on February 11th at La Casa de las Ciencias de Logroño, Spain.
The exhibition presents the work of 50 female botanical illustrators from the 16th century to the present, revealing the relationships between art, science, and gender.
More than 200 reproductions of botanical works in different formats, such as drawings, engravings, photographs, sculptures, paintings, and books, highlight the contribution of women in both the scientific and artistic fields.
Visitors to the exhibition can see work by female masters such as Maria Sibylla Merian, Elizabeth Blackwell, Ellen Hutchins, and Beatrix Potter, as well as work by many well-known contemporary botanical artists, including some of our SBA Fellows- Marta Chirino, Billy Showell, Shevaun Doherty, Deborah Lambkin and Pamela Taylor.
