The Saint Louis Foundry Art Centre’s current exhibition features 44 pieces of artwork in a juried nationwide art exhibition called “Out of the Woods.” This exhibition features very intricate paintings and drawings of trees and plants you could find in public gardens.

“The American Society Of Botanical Artists is a non-profit organization with over 40 different countries involved,” said Post President Jody Williams of ASBA. “Our mission is to provide a thriving interactive community thats dedicated to continuing the tradition of botanical art.”

The exhibition goes from now until the December 28. The gallery is presented by the American Society of Botanical Arts in the hopes of gathering artists from all over the nation to continue the growth of botanical arts.

Artists from all over must receive their inspiration from a functioning garden or public botanic location. This helps the artist capture the most intricate details possible.

“This is a form of representational art,” Williams said. “Meant to represent the subject, plants, so this being the third exhibition, the theme is ‘Out of the Woods.'”

This years gold medal winner, artist Asuka Hishiki captured the bold bonsai tree. Using oil pastels on paper and an insane attention to detail lead to the gold medal win. Hishiki’s piece was titled, “Black Pine Half-cascade Style Bonsai.”

“Being able to see this exhibition at the Foundry is very special to me,” Williams explained. “The gallery spaces at this Foundry are the nicest in the Saint Louis region, making it a thrill to me to see it here.”
