New York Botanical Garden, BronxOut of the Woods: Celebrating Trees in Public Gardens” is the third of New York Botanical Garden’s triennial exhibitions with the American Society of Botanical Artists, which is headquartered at the Garden, 2900 Southern Boulevard, Bronx, New York. Open now in the Ross Gallery, it runs through April 22, 2018.

Forty-four selected artworks capture strikingly detailed images of trees, all of them cultivated in public gardens and arboreta throughout the U.S. — including at NYBG -– and around the world.

Working in watercolor, oil, graphite, colored pencil, and ink, an international collection of artists has depicted everything from seed pods, to branches and bark, to an entire forest floor. Several contributors are graduates of NYBG’s Botanical Art and Illustration Certificate Program.

The exhibition moves to the Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens, San Marino, California, May 19 – August 27, 2018; then to the Foundry Art Centre, St. Charles, Missouri, October 5 – December 28, 2018; then to Tucson Botanical Gardens, Tucson, Arizona, January 25 – April 13, 2019, and finally to Minnesota Landscape Arboretum, Chaska, Minnesota, May 9 – August 13, 2019.
