Marin Art and Garden Center and the American Society of Botanical Artists (ASBA) present the 24th Annual International exhibition of botanical art. This premier annual showcase of contemporary botanical art features some of the genre’s most established artists alongside emerging talents.

Artists included hail from the US, Australia, Canada, France, Japan, Russia, Singapore, South Korea, and the UK. Of the 42 artists included, ten of these have never before been included in an ASBA international exhibition.
