My oil painting “Book Club” has been accepted to be part of the Art of the Heirloom Exhibition at the National Heirloom Expo at the Petaluma Seed Bank in Petaluma, California. This event draws gardeners, food activists, farmers, and seedy people from all over the country. With educational lectures, garden-and farm-theme activities, and incredible keynote speakers, the Expo brings in more than 20,000 people, while raising awareness about heirloom seeds and the threat of GMOs. Each year at the Expo, the Hudson Valley Seed Library curates an exhibition of garden-themed art. The exhibit is open to artists from all over America, who paint, draw, carve, embroider, collage, print or etch images related to heirloom gardening.
