Global Garden: Resonant Beauty

A Solo Exhibition of Orchid Paintings by Patricia Laspino
January 29 - April 25, 2021

As a professional artist, Patricia Laspino’s 40-year career has been inspired by the beauty and diversity of the natural world and its power to influence. She has chosen the floral, specifically the orchid, as a primary focus of interest. By using orchids as a metaphor in her paintings, she explores cultural and biological evolution, biodiversity and environmental stewardship.

The Orchid Alliance Project-Bridging Art & Science is her ambitious endeavor which has global significance. Weaving together two disciplines through scientific inquiry and collaboration, her art provides fresh perspectives on the interconnectedness of humanity and the natural world.

Sunday Art Chats with Pat
April 11th, 18th & 25th in the galleries from 1 - 2 pm.
Space is limited - RSVP today!
