Orchid Art Exhibition in XTBG
Using art to communicate science can be an engaging way to discuss complex conservation topics. That’s why I am super excited to welcome Işık Güner, renowned botanical artist, to XTBG for a collaborative project focusing on orchid conservation. Isik and I are working together to develop an exhibit of botanical illustrations with the aim of reducing the over-consumption of wild orchids in China. We are working with local artist He Rua Hua to combine both scientific and Chinese style paintings.
This project will be a few years in the making and we are just at the start of the journey.
Check back for updates as we progress towards a unique and world class exhibition.
