Curiosity and Wonder - Experience the magic and beauty of the botanical world in an exhibition featuring new work by Colleen Ayson. In her first show at the Botanical Gardens, Curiosity and Wonder explores the mysterious alchemy of beauty in nature and the creatures that inhabit our world.
“I’m thrilled for visitor to experience my work at the Botanical Gardens. Buffalo has an important heritage with gardens from Olmsted, the Botanical Gardens to the Open Gardens Weekends in summer. The artwork complements the Botanical Gardens and invites visitors to see the magic and wonder of flowers.”
These botanical portraits are styled like classical portraiture as a way to showcase the personality, drama and beauty of each individual flower.
Colleen Ayson is a visual artist born and raised in California. She has a degree in Art & Design from Chelsea College of Arts, London. She moved to Buffalo, NY via Melbourne Australia in 2013.
