Friday, April 17, 2020
9:30–11:30 am—CANCELLED

Fee: $29

Out of an abundance of concern for the well being of our guests and community, and in keeping with the CDC’s guidance to practice social distancing, we are cancelling all assembled group activities and events from March 13 through April 22, which includes all classes originally scheduled during that time. Ticket buyers will be contacted with information about receiving a refund.

Follow the journey of world-renowned plant hunter and illustrator Chris Thorogood, who has painted his way around the globe, depicting the world’s weirdest and wildest rare plants. His travels span from the driest deserts of the Middle East to the misty mountains of tropical Borneo. The plant kingdom is replete with intriguing forms and structures that have long inspired botanical illustrators. Thorogood recounts the challenges of his adventures, and how he has sought to conjure up these botanical curiosities in oil on canvas.

Take home a signed copy of Weird Plants by Chris Thorogood and your very own Nepenthes to continue your appreciation for the carnivorous plants.
