Bizarre Botany is an exhibition of black and white drawings by Miami-based Tropical Botanic Artists group. The original illustrations are drawn from 140 created for THE BIG, BAD BOOK OF BOTANY: The Worldâ€™s Most Fascinating Flora by Michael Largo (William Morrow). The artists will be present for the January 9, 2015, kickoff event of South Miamiâ€™s monthly GalleryWalk.
Largoâ€™s research for the highly personal collection of anecdotes about the effects of common and uncommon plants on humans led him to Tropical Botanic Artists who drew or painted plants to illustrate his words. Book combines latest biological data with bizarre facts about some of the plant kingdomâ€™s most intriguing species.
Artists whose works are on view are Margie Bauer, Kristi Bettendorf, Beverly Borland, Silvia Bota, Marge Brown, Marie Chaney, Susan Cumins, Jeanie Duck, Julio Figueroa, Bobbi Garber, Pauline Goldsmith, Leo Hernandez, Carol Ann Lane, Elsa Nadal, Carol Onstad, and Donna Torres.
