Congratulations to SBA Fellow Florence Gendre whose first solo exhibition opened on May 6th in Gimont, France.
“My passion for drawing and plants… A work of research and intimacy with flowers, seeds, and trees. A selection of botanical watercolors, graphite pencil illustrations and excerpts from sketchbooks made during my travels are presented. The expression of a magnified nature where I like to play with the scales of reproduction.
Through a set of naturalistic drawings, you will be able to learn about the plants of the Ennedi desert in Chad. Also on display will be the plates from the book “Letters to Trees” published by Élytis and Transboréal.
An exploration into the world of plants to discover, like a bucolic stroll.
I will be present on Saturday May 13 and Sunday May 14 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. to sign the prints and my book.
Opening May 6 at 11:30 a.m.
Exhibition from May 3 to 31, 2023

Workshop 122 – 122 rue Nationale – Gimont
