Virtual exhibit: The Willmar Area Arts Council Presents: The Beauty and Science of Botanical Art, paintings by Mary LaPatka. Mary received an emerging artist grant from the SWMN Arts Council to create this exhibit. Mary says, “By attending a lecture on The History of Botanical Art and Illustration on a whim, I discovered Botanical Art watercolor painting. As I observed, sketched and painted bud, flowers, pods and bulbs, I fell in love with this historically significant and almost forgotten art form.” To see the virtual exhibit, visit: www.willmarareaartscouncil.org/the-beauty-and-science-of-botanical-art-paintings-by-mary-lapatka/
If WEAC reopens to the public, they will update the information on the website and you will be able to see the exhibit in person.
