Support your favorite local artists in Botany and Beauty, a group show celebrating art inspired by Snug Harbor’s gardens, plants, and flowers.

Plants give us the air we breathe and the food we eat through the oxygen and sugars produced by photosynthesis. That same process nourished the very origins of life over 400 million years ago. Plants also sustain us on a spiritual level, giving us continuity, peace, and inspiring botanical gardens like Snug Harbor.

In Botany and Beauty, the artists express their gratitude to our local flora through sculpture, painting, printmaking, and mixed media.

Artists: Larry Anderson, Mary Bullock, Anthony Butera, Richard Capuozzo, Brendan Coyle, Steve Foust, Griselda Healy, Patti Kelly, Ann Marie McDonnell, Bill Murphy, John Naughton, Kurt Novak, Andrea Phillips, Vincent Verdi, Universal Temple of the Arts
