Regional Exhibitions

To complement the national juried exhibition, Art of the Plant, regional exhibitions open in May 2108 in eastern, central and western Canada. Organized by Canada’s five botanical art societies, each exhibit features native plants of Canada, making this truly a countrywide celebration of our botanical artists and native plant diversity.
