American Botanical Paintings: Native Plants of the Mid Atlantic

Book cover - small
Dust Jacket for "American Botanical Paintings Native Plants of the Mid Atlantic"

We invited other artists, mostly those in the mid-Atlantic region (New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, District of Columbia, Virginia, West Virginia, and North Carolina), to participate in a juried competition for inclusion of their work in a book. Publication costs for the book came from donations.

The resulting book is meaningful to both artists and gardeners. It is intended to foster appreciation not only for the beauty of native plants and their artistic representations but also for their importance to the environment and to encourage, where practical, the use of native plants in home gardens.

This award-winning book, American Botanical Paintings: Native Plants of the Mid Atlantic, contains 60 reproductions of original botanical paintings and drawings; a number of original paintings of butterflies and other insect pollinators; and text describing the plants, their habitat, and importance to the environment.
