  • Art of the Plant Exhibition Catalogue – Available!

    Catalogues are usually the sole lasting legacy of an exhibition but the limited catalogue for the Art of the Plant exhibition is more than that – it’s a collector’s item.  Graphic designers Karen Humphrey and Alexander Sakarev, produced this magnificent catalogue that’s garnered praise from botanical art sources locally and internationally. Part of what sets this catalogue aside from most is it’s structure – a 64-page catalogue of exhibition paintings, a 34-page full-colour Artists booklet, and a die-cut slipcase. Copies are still available directly from Karen’s studio by emailing orders@peartreeimpressions.com (delivery and payment will be arranged). Order online coming soon…
