Hunt Institute for Botanical Documentation

The Hunt Institute for Botanical Documentation (Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh, USA, holds an International Exhibition of Botanical Art and Illustration every three years, and the next exhibition will be held from 30 September 2007 to 21 December 2007.

I recently received a letter from Mr J White, the curator of Art, the Hunt Institute which told me that they would include my paintings for the next exhibition.  The two paintings which are accepted are:  Encyclia cochleata and Encyclia dickinsoniana.   Both of the paintings are included in this blog.

I am very pleased to hear it.  I will visit the USA for the first time next year.
