Artists Reception June 12, 6-9PM


Since 2003, Twenty-Two Gallery has been showing local emerging and established artist’s work.  In our first show devoted to the botanical art genre we are pleased to present the work of Carol Ashton-Hergenhan, an established local artist. Her work is in numerous private and institutional collections, and has been exhibited in juried and invitational shows throughout the country.

This show continues her exploration of the cycle of plants from Florescence when the plant attracts pollinators to continue its species, through Senescence as the aging plant struggles to continue its own existence in preparation for a future generation, to Regeneration, when the species starts anew and the cycle begins again.
