The Marin Art & Garden Center is proud to host the 22nd Annual International, the first time this exhibition has been held on the West Coast. The selection jury of Frank Almeda, Ph.D., Curator Emeritus, Institute for Biodiversity Science and Sustainability, California Academy of Sciences; Julie Bly DeVere, Head Curator and Collections Manager, Historic Filoli Estate; and Martha Kemp, Botanical Artist met in May, selecting 48 artworks from a competitive field of 230 entries. Artists included hail from the US, Australia, Brazil, Canada, France, Ireland, Japan, Norway, Russia, Slovenia, South Korea, and the UK. Of the 45 artists included, eighteen of these have never before been included in an ASBA international exhibition.

Several events are being planned to coincide with the exhibition’s appearance, including workshops, lectures, and other programming. A catalog will be published, and Myra Sourkes and Claudia Lane are compiling “Artists’ Stories Behind the Art” for ASBA’s website.
