Botanical Wonders

October 19 - November 15

Best Buds Rhododendron Calophytum by Carol Putnam (watercolor)

Witness the tiny botanical details we take for granted in our day to day lives as members of the Oregon Botanical Society plus wood sculptor Sam Hingston showcase their work in the Dee Denton Gallery at Lakewood Center for the Arts! This exhibit uses ink, watercolor, colored pencils, and wood, as the primary mediums to highlight the organic edges of the natural specimens depicted. The artists strive to illustrate the diversity of plant life while bringing attention to imperiled species and ecosystems. We hope you find yourself in wonderment as you explore a new world of native plant species. This enchanting exhibit will only be at The Lakewood Center for the Arts through November 15, so don’t miss your chance to see it! To view the exhibit, visit the Lakewood Center for the Arts at 368 S. State St. in Lake Oswego. You may also schedule a tour by calling the box office M-F between 10AM and 4PM or emailing tickets@lakewood-center.org

Exhibiting Artists: Aislinn Adams, Sam Hingston, Janet Parker, Carol Putnam and Janene Walkky.
