Atheneum Gallery

The Botanical Gourmet

Botanical Arts Society of the National Capital Region

Botanical art is neither scientific illustration nor decorative floral composition, but an engaging

combination of the two. Like blue jays or cabbage moths, botanical artists are drawn to shiny red berries and bright yellow flowers, but unlike other creatures, they have the means to depict their attraction. The works in this exhibit focus specifically on plants that have health-giving nutritional properties for people.

Artist Talk: Friday, January 13, 2023

The Torpedo Factory Art Center presents the culminating exhibition for the 2022 Post-Graduate Residency co-hort: Mrinal Joshi, Julia O’Bryan, Kamille Jackson, and Kiel Posner on view in Target Gallery.

This residency provides a unique experience at a critical juncture in an emerging artist’s career after they graduate their BFA or MFA program, allowing them unlimited studio access and the ability to engage with the community outside of academic context. The work on view in this exhibition will spotlight  the work and creative endeavors these four residents created during their three-month residency in studio #319.

Join us for a reception and artist talk on Sunday, January 13 where we will also be introducing the new 2023 co-hort.
