“Favorite Flavors” is a botanical art exhibit by Wendy Hollender – featuring some of the bakery’s favorite ingredients in their purest form – plants!
Artwork will be on view from January 20th-March 29th with a First Saturday Opening Reception on February 1st from 4-7pm.
WENDY HOLLENDER is a botanical artist, author, and instructor, living in Accord, NY. She leads workshops on her farm in Accord as well as in varied locations throughout the world. Hollender’s illustrations have been published extensively. She has exhibited in natural history museums and botanical institutes, including a solo exhibit at the US Botanic Garden. Wendy has three books on Botanical Drawing and co published and illustrated, Foraging & Feasting: A Field Guide and Wild Food Cookbook by Dina Falconi.
Wendy graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design in 1976 and began a career in botanical illustration after completing a certificate at the New York Botanical Garden in 1998.
I have been drawing plants for 20 years. My original drawings and paintings are life-size, which means they are often very small. I like to enlarge them so the details that we might not otherwise notice become visible. The enlarged prints are bright and colorful in a bold way, and my intention is to transform them into contemporary images.
It is exciting for me to exhibit at the Local Artisan Bakery and highlight prints that use some of the owner’s favorite ingredients.
