Hidden Worlds: A New Herbarium
Fall 2021 - Winter 2022
Madge Evers presents us with ethereal vistas into the intricate patterns she discovers in nature by design or by discovery. By definition, an herbarium is a collection of preserved plant or fungal specimens. Evers creates her own unique version of the traditional herbarium. She breaks out, explores, and expands the traditional with our current Arboretum exhibition. Although plant specimens are often dried by pressing, Evers gathers the living fungi and disperses their spores over a template of gathered leaves and flowers. The result is magical and rich, a nuanced palette of hues juxtaposed with this artist's expressive sensibilities.
