During the recurrent cold snaps this winter is throwing at us, it is a good time to visit the O’Shaughnessy Education Center Gallery to view “Botanical Art in All Its Wonder”. The exhibition, in conjunction with the Sacred Arts Festival, features the work of seven Minnesota artists who specialize in the depiction of plant forms. The pieces, both 2- and 3-dimensional, expand the definition of botanical art from exacting replicas of fauna (Sandra Muzzy, Anna Rosenthal), to oversized photographically rich flowers (Charles Lyon), to moody, complicated prints (Stephanie Hunder), realistic horticulture set as design problems (Marian-Ortolf Bagley) to bead and felt works (Jo Woods), and fused glass (Nancy H Seaton). It might not be as warming as wandering through a conservatory.
