Celebrating the Garden: Narrative Painting and Ecology
LTC is a host partner with artist Emma Steinkraus, one of this summer’s Good Hart artists-in-residence. Emma has always been interested in depictions of nature, and her paintings and installations often feature plants and animals. Her current passion is for the historical contributions women have made to botanical art and scientific illustration. Through her summer residency, Emma is creating a large installation that highlights work by almost a hundred different female artist-naturalists who worked before the 20th century. Join her for an artist talk about the development of her work, her interest in ecology, and the often overlooked contributions women artists have made to natural history.
