    Ex Herbario: Recent Works by Susan Hardy Brown

    Reception: Saturday, September 15, 1:00–3:00pm

    Artist Talk: Thursday, September 13, 7:00–8:30pm

    Utilizing materials gathered from 25 years as herbarium preparator at the Arnold Arboretum, Susan Hardy Brown presents art that reveals and transforms the ephemera associated with her daily work. Painting with encaustic medium (beeswax and resin) enables her to preserve and layer the various elements of specimen collection: international newspapers pages used to press plants in the field, extraneous labels, seeds and plant parts. Her paintings renew these found materials giving a unique perspective into the realm of herbarium collections.
