An exhibit of botanical paintings by Brenda Whiteway will be on display at Ravenwood House, the home of Island Nature Trust, located at 15 Crown Drive in Charlottetown from Monday March 4th until Thursday March 21st. Viewing is open during the Nature Trust’s hours which are 8:00 am until 4:00 pm Monday through Friday.
The botanical paintings are a component of a larger artistic project focused on observing,
recording, and visually expressing aspects of the weather patterns, light, tidal shifts, flora and fauna, history and cultural ecology within an area located along the Northumberland Strait in south eastern PEI. The coastal area is ever-changing and the plant life there is a reflection of the conditions occurring throughout the seasons and from year to year. The paintings are based on direct observation and celebrate the diversity of wild plants common to PEI.
