Focus on Nature XII

REMINDER: Entry deadline October 1, 2011


Focus on Nature XII: Natural History Illustration
New York State Museum
April 28 - December 31, 2012

Focus on Nature (FON) is a biennial exhibition of scientific, natural and cultural history illustration. Since its inception in 1990 the number and quality of submissions have risen, range of materials and media have expanded, and the geographic representation of artists has broadened. A five-member jury of scientists and artists selects artwork that accurately represent the subjects, or research results and processes. 
FON seeks to demonstrate the connection between science and images; stimulate an interest in natural history art among practicing artists, aspiring artists, and the public; and bring natural history illustration to the attention of people who might not otherwise be aware of the important role it plays in research and the dissemination of knowledge.
Each exhibit invites a guest juror from among artists who have previously participated in FON. The guest juror for FON XII is Francesca Anderson
