The work included in this exhibition ranges widely, mirroring its inspiration – one of the largest and most diverse plant groups on the planet.  From pure botanical fascination to climate change, from historical model-making to the history of collecting and colonization, the ten contemporary artists represented approach the orchid from very different angles. Working in printmaking, sculpture, photography, ceramics, glass, paper, and varied hybrid media, their work is thoughtful, insightful, challenging, and beautiful.
