Isaac Sutton has been collecting botanical art since 1998, with many of his acquisitions coming from The Hort's annual exhibition with the American Society of Botanical Artists. Since 2009, Sutton's collection has been touring as Botanicals: Environmental Expressions in Art, a show that began at the Hunt Institute in Pittsburgh and has traveled to the New York Botanical Gardens, Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum in Wausau, Wisconsin, and the Shirley Sherwood Gallery of Botanical Art at the Royal Botanic Gardens in Kew, United Kingdom. This exhibition presents an intimate selection from that collection-spanning show, while updating it with several new acquisitions, including three recently commissioned paintings of the Sutton dogwood by Jean Emmons, Karen Kluglein, and Carol Woodin.
The catalog for Botanicals is available at The Hort for the exclusive discounted price of $25.
