Speaker: Charlotte Heath, Botanical artist

Program: Ever try to draw a flower?

Award-winning botanical artist Charlotte Heath will journey up the Delmarva Peninsula from her home in Onancock, VA, to tell her story of a life-long love of drawing plants and flowers to attending the Art Institute of Pittsburgh and to national acclaim. Her artwork has been exhibited in international juried botanical shows from New York to Seattle. Charlotte, one among 45 artists from around the world, was chosen to participate in the first ever, contemporary botanical art showing in a major museum—the Weismann Museum in Minneapolis. Some of her work in gouache, pencil, pen & ink and acrylic will be available for purchase following the program.
