Opening Reception – Nancy Glover: Botanical Illustrations
March 15, 2018 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM
Botanical illustrations by their very nature are precise and elegant. Often this type of drawing depicts a plant removed from life, a specimen selected for scientific study or display. Alternatively, Nancy Glover’s vivacious botanical drawings provide a fresh update on this historical genre, and are rigorous without being clinical.
Nancy Glover grew up in the Rocky Mountain region of Western Montana. Glover moved to the West Coast after earning a BA from the University of Montana in Missoula. She attended California College of Arts and Crafts in Oakland before moving to New York City. In 1991 Nancy received an MFA in painting from Hunter College. Later, in 2005 she earned a certificate in Botanical Illustration from the New York Botanical Garden. Glover was awarded residencies at McDowell Art Colony, Virginia Center for the Creative Arts and Montana Artist Refuge. She has been included in numerous exhibitions.
She lives and works in Brooklyn and currently teaches botanical illustration at Pratt Institute.
