Hello Friends,

Large printed Illustrations from the book Foraging & Feasting: A Field Guide and Wild Food Cookbook will be part of this vibrant exhibition opening this month at the Ashokan Center in Olivebridge, NY. These large prints are mounted in the dining room so that folks can study the plants, many of which are edible as they dine.
Illustrating Hidden Treasures:
Botanical Art by Wendy Hollender

Exhibition Opening
 at The Ashokan Center

477 Beaverkill RD Olivebridge, NY 12461
Saturday, August 13, 4 p.m. 
Free and open to the public!

For the past seventeen years, artist Wendy Hollender's work has focused exclusively on plants. Her interest in understanding how plants function informs the botanically correct illustrations she creates. This exhibition presents drawings featured in magazines, advertisements and a book about wild edible plants titled Foraging and Feasting: A Field Guide and Wild Food Cookbook, co-published by Hollender and author Dina Falconi. Wendy Hollender will be on hand to answer questions.

We will have books, note cards and prints for sale.

People who attend the opening are invited to stay for the Cajun & Square Dance Party & BBQ at 6 p.m. The menu will feature a number of root-based recipes inspired by the exhibition.

Illustrating Hidden Treasures was first presented at the United States Botanic Garden in Washington, D.C. Botanist, Susan Pell, Science and Public Programs Manager at USBG, curated the exhibition. It will remain on view at The Ashokan Center through Fall 2016. The exhibition is a group of 16 large giclee prints. Each print is enlarged proportionally to  41 inches in size making this work dramatic and informative. The prints use archival inks and are printed on acid free canvas.

Cajun & Square Dance Party & BBQ
August 13, 6 p.m.
Everyone is invited to eat, dance, and enjoy an evening of music in Ashokan's outdoor pavilion. This dance party and BBQ is the perfect way for people interested in Ashokan Music & Dance Camps to get a "taste" of the experience... and a fun way for campers to kick off Ashokan's Southern Week. Includes a sumptuous BBQ dinner, music by Jay & Molly and friends... and contra and Catskill squares dances. A free group lesson takes place before the dance starts. Dance and/or BBQ tickets are available online by clicking here at or at the door (prices are higher on the day of the event). Overnight accommodations are available.

Hope to see you there!
