There’s been a change in the meeting date for February. It will now be on February 9th, instead of February 2. A group email blast will be sent out shortly with details and the agenda for the meeting.

So, the BAGSC quarterly meetings for 2013 plus the holiday party are now as follows:

  • February 9
  • April 20
  • June 29
  • September 14
  • and the December 7 Holiday Party (no meeting included, just eating, drinking, and enjoying ourselves)

Let us know of any workshops or presentations you would like to see at one of the meetings.

Keep your eyes peeled for blog and email announcements of classes, workshops, activities and exhibitions. Next year will start off with a lot happening in January, and lots more to come. It promises to be an exciting year!

Descanso Gardens in the Sturt Haaga Gallery

The WILD Flowers, Nature ReimaginedThe WILD Flowers presents work by 17 contemporary artists who live and work in California.  The show was conceived and curated to complement the exhibition When They Were Wild, which opens March 9, 2013, at the Huntington Library, Art Collections and Botanical Gardens.  

Running concurrently with the WILD Flowers are works of contemporary botanical illustration provided by the Botanical Artists Guild of Southern California.  This exhibit is presented in the Boddy House’s Heritage Gallery and features selected works by Suzanne Kuuskmae, Joan Keesey, Janice Sharp, Deborah Shaw, and Gilly Shaeffer.

Both exhibits are free with admission and open during regular business hours: the Sturt Haaga Gallery is open daily from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., except Mondays.
