SeedPlay - Solo Show at Daniel Stowe Botanical Gardens

My Seed Play series will be featured in a solo show at Daniel Stowe Botanical Gardens from October 1 through November 14.

Saturday, November 6, I will be giving a workshop on creating fiber art using botanical illustration and stenciling. To register for the workshop, contact DSBG.

Here is what DSBG's newsletter has to say about the work:

"In her work, Nancy highlights the seeds and fruits of trees, bringing them to life with multi-media techniques including botanical illustration, stenciling, quilting and embroidery. The result is a unique effect that inspires closer observation of the beautiful shapes and forms of nature. Working from collected seed specimens, these unusual designs are based on research and sketching to clarify what is architecturally unique for each species and focuses attention on a part of trees that is often overlooked.”
