“Floribunda” is a celebration of all things floral and will feature the Hunt Institute’s 14th International Exhibition of Botanical Art & Illustration, with 36 artists from 9 countries showcasing works ranging from watercolor with gouache to relief engraving. The Hunt exhibition has been traveling for the past two years around the United States; the Petaluma stop is the final one on the tour. Floribunda will also include three Bay Area artists – Aimee Baldwin, Evan Kolker, and Randy Strong – who create 3-dimensional representations of flowers. To round out the Floribunda exhibition, the Petaluma Arts Center will present a variety of activities: an artists’ talk, studio workshops, and a botanical artist demonstration featuring Sonoma county artists of varying techniques ranging from graphite and watercolor to gouache. The exhibit runs from Oct. 16 through Dec. 11. The Opening Reception will be held on Saturday October 22 from 5:00-7:00 p.m. (Image: Hughes - Doryanthes Excelsa; Hunt - Selwood Altona)
