Art@BTI presents Weeds: Untamed Wonder, a collection by the Finger Lakes Guild of Natural Science Illustrators.

The natural science artists have selected their favorite weeds of the northeast to render in beautiful illustrations. Their exhibit will explain what makes a plant a “weed” and will give information on how to distinguish between local weeds and invasive plants. The collection includes 20 pieces from 15 illustrators from around the Finger Lakes.

The exhibit is currently open during business hours and is free and open to the public.

BTI will also host a reception in early April where participating artists will discuss their inspiration for their work with the public.


Art@BTI is made possible by Tompkins Trust Company, with additional support from Hancock Estabrook, LLC and Cayuga Landscaping.
