The Botanical Art of Curly Lieber
June 9 @ 10:00 am - June 11 @ 5:00 pm
The Botanical Art of Curly Lieber complements the naturalist art found in the Flora/Fauna exhibition. Some years ago, horticultural designer Curly Lieber turned her keen eye for the natural world towards the passionate study of botanical art and illustration. This small exhibit of her work exemplifies the way contemporary artists continue the pursuit of capturing nature with scientific accuracy. Lieber uses a fine brush (often with just one or two hairs) to paint as many as 30 layers of watercolor on natural calf skin vellum or paper to achieve the exquisite detail and translucency of her work. Blooms with a View and The Botanical Art of Curly Lieber are included with Museum admission.
