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.

Throughout February, artist Patricia Laspino will be in the galleries from 12 to 3 pm to speak with visitors and answer questions about the work in GLOBAL GARDEN: RESONANT BEAUTY.
