More Botanical Art

Library of Virginia Art Exhibit

If you love plants (and we know you do!) come out and see another new exhibit of stunning botanical art alongside the Flora of Virginia exhibit at the Library of Virginia.

Central Virginia Botanical Artists, a group composed of mostly Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden teachers, students and graduates of the Botanical Illustration Certificate program, are exhibiting their work at the Library of Virginia through May 28. This exhibit is a local contribution during the time of the Flora of Virginia exhibit at the library. The Floral of Virginia exhibit includes original artwork created for the book, along with displays of the process of making botanical art, botanical dyes, the ecology of Virginia and more.

The Library of Virginia is located at 800 East Broad Street, Richmond, VA and is open Monday – Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
