Before saying good-bye, Bruns will present his work in the exhibition Arigatō, 10 Years at Glen Echo Park in the Park’s Popcorn Gallery.

Inside the Garden Walls: Botanical Art by Anne Clippinger and Joan Ducore
June 1 to 30, 2018 // Park View Gallery
Botanical art is the melding of scientific accuracy and artistic sensitivity. This exhibit offers a look into the contemporary botanical art scene. As Clippinger and Ducore draw inspiration from their gardens and beyond, they strive to capture the delicacy, complexity, and vibrancy found in the plant world. Careful observation of the plant’s botany, color variations, and growth habit are essential. The beauty and nature of each botanical subject are reflected in these plant portraits using watercolor, colored pencil, and graphite.
Monday through Saturday, 10am – 6pm.

Glen Echo Park is located at 7300 MacArthur Blvd., Glen Echo, MD. For more information, visit glenechopark.org/calendar.
