Angell was the illustrator for the New York Times Garden Q&A column (no longer published), and is well known in the area for her finely rendered pen and ink illustrations and etchings of flowering plants, vegetables, and horticultural specimens. In recent years Angell has been printing at Gallery Wright Studio in Wilmington.
In her work for popular books like “Wicked Plants,” Morrow-Cribbs brings her own unique style to the tradition of botanical illustration. Born in the Bay Area and raised on an island off the coast of Washington State, Morrow-Cribbs currently lives and works in southern Vermont. Morrow-Cribbs creates intensely detailed etchings and drawings, surreal versions of the natural world. In 2008 she co-founded Twin Vixen Press in Brattleboro. As a printmaker, Morrow-Cribbs has shown both nationally and internationally.
Perkins will be showing recent line drawings in pen and ink, with notations that he made in the field. He is also known for ultra-realistic “allegorical landscapes”––paintings with plants and the occasional critter being the protagonists.
Roden a recently retired teacher who taught for many years in southern Vermont’s elementary schools, creates compositions of pressed flowers. She is a master of this particular art form, selling prints of her pictures in the form of cards and other wares in fairs, galleries, and special events throughout New England. Roden will be exhibiting the original artwork of single-flower specimens and ornamental grasses culled from her garden.
