Grow your appreciation for our national plants this spring!
Presented in partnership with the Ottawa Society of Botanical Artists (OSBA), Plant Portraits: Native Plants of Canada is an impressive collection of modern, botanical art. Through more than 30 original artworks – in watercolour, graphite, and mixed media – the exhibition examines our native plants as seen through the eyes of artists.
Plant Portraits: Native Plants of Canada runs from May 18 to October 31 at the Canada Agriculture and Food Museum – and you won’t want to miss it.
