Upcoming Exhibition

Sherry Johnson - Cucumber SpotL

Over 30 Master Artists from the Mary L. Harden School of Botanical Illustration in San Francisco, will display their watercolor illustrations.

These works will cultivate your awareness in the art of technical botanical observation of flora and the fauna that are attracted to them. These master artists are instructed through careful observation of the truth of a plant, its structure, pigment coloration, complex shapes, variations and life cycle elements.



“The skill of keen observation of live plant specimens is basic to this 1,000 year-old art form. Rendering a subject with accuracy and beauty in pen and ink is a foundational skill for botanical art.”  – Mary L Harden


Sherry Johnson - Cucumber Spot


The works created by these artists regularly tour Bay Area venues to support nonprofits that work towards education, conservation, and preservation of natural habitats.
