SEPT 5 - OCT 12
Artists Reception: SEPT 5, 6-8 PM
The Seymour Botanical Conservatory at Wright Park is one of Tacoma’s iconic landmarks – and this September it will be the scene of a unique exhibition: “Ethnobotany: An Artists’ Study of Plants”.
Twelve featured artists in the Conservatory will venture into the world of ethnobotany through recycled material, wood, textiles, glass, metal and ceramics. Ethnobotany is the study of the relationships that have existed between primitive cultures and plants across time and throughout the world. The plant kingdom supports human life as a source of food, medicine, textiles, shelter, transportation, currency, and more. It is also a source of inspiration and ritual. In this show, artists explore ethnobotany through works that make often surprising connections between contemporary circumstances, art, botanical life and science.
