The Bolinas School of Botanical Art exhibition celebrates the beauty and intricacy of various plants found growing in West Marin.  These accurate plant portraits were created by local Bolinas and Stinson Beach artists. Media used includes graphite, colored pencils and watercolor pencils.

Botanical art is a centuries-old art form that has a long and colorful history dating back to the 1400’s.   With the advent of photography, botanical art went dormant for nearly 100 years, but saw a rebirth in the late 1900’s.

A blend of art and science, botanical art captures the essence of plant species.  After closely observing and measuring the plant subjects, the artist discovers amazing details.  The challenge for the botanical artist is to both describe each plants’ unique qualities and recreate its grace and beauty.

The BSBA was founded in 2014 by Molly Brown and has continuing ongoing classes in Bolinas.
