Portraits of a Garden:
As an important part of the Brooklyn Botanic Garden's celebrations of the first 100 years as a public urban garden, the Brooklyn Botanic Garden Florilegium Society has the opportunity to display a selection from their more than 200 paintings in the Shirley Sherwood Gallery of Botanical Art at Kew Gardens.
Only 30 plates from the collection were selected for the exhibit at Kew (on display August 28, 2010 through January 3, 2011).The Florilegium was established in 2000.

Congratulations Constance and Libby! Your work is beautiful and, as a student of the program, is very inspirational for me!

What a magnificent exhibit and we thought it wonderful to have two of our locals represented there. Libby's and Constance's works are much more impressive in person and hold up quite well against the others. We saw the exhibit on 12/15/2010.
