All Nature Is But Art features artwork by the Botanical Art Society of the National Capital Region (BASNCR). In the early nineteenth century, the intrepid English author Frances Trollope embarked on a multiyear journey around the United States. Her travels took her from New Orleans to Niagara Falls. The spring of 1830 found her staying at Stonington, a farm not far from Glen Echo and close to the C&O Canal, which she observed under construction. Her advice to travelers was to “let no one visit America without having first studied botany.” With the current renewed interest in native flora among ecologically minded gardeners, BASNCR presents an exhibit showcasing the kinds of plants that Frances Trollope might have encountered on her journey around the young United States.

 

The BASNCR (www.basncr.org) is a nonprofit organization of professional and semi-professional artists and illustrators who specialize in depicting botanical subjects in ways that are both scientifically precise and aesthetically appealing.

The Glen Echo Park Partnership is pleased to present Space Cowgirls: Ciara Barsotti. The exhibition is a series that explores humanity’s relationship with the land and this planet we call “Earth.” It features colorful acrylic landscape paintings of the Southwest, with an added technique that involves glassine or tracing paper to create semi-transparent figures that float over the landscapes. When the series began, the figures in these paintings were tourists, visiting national parks and famous vistas from another time or dimension, and have since taken on more of a guardianship role over the land.
