“The greatest flower artists have been those who have found beauty in truth; who have understood plants scientifically, but who have yet seen and described them with the eye and hand of the artist.” – Professor Peter R. Crane FRS, former Director and CEO of the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew Art Exhibit Open: March 20 – April 26, 2020. Closed Mondays and Tuesdays. Opening Reception: Friday, March 20, 5:00 pm There are hints of Spring! Susan Bull Riley’s watercolors chronicle the emergence and progression of a magical and long-awaited season. Bull Riley paints in the millennia-long tradition of plant portraiture. Like those before her, she may depict plants for scientific goals, but her evident success suggests a joy in studying a plant closely to reveal their endlessly fascinating form and color. Susan grew up in Vermont and spent more time outside than in. These paintings suggest she may still. Time indoors is spent painting the observations of her day, so it is no surprise that birds and other creatures make an appearance. She brings to them the same affection and close observation that exemplify her botanical and landscape paintings.
