Sounds just wonderful. And for those of us unable to attend, where to  
we get a catalog? Thank you. j

I promised our local chapter that I would post a notice of an  
excellent upcoming traveling botanical illustration exhibit for those  
of you in the Chicago/midwestern states area who might be interested.  
I know weather is chancy mid- to late January but if you can make it,  
I can assure you, it's worth at least a bit of a drive! The 44 works  
in this juried show highlight the wonder and diversity of our  
disappearing species. Peter Raven, director of the Missouri Botanic  
Garden, wrote the introduction to the exhibition catalogue, with  
additional essays by Sir Peter Crane; Katherine Kennedy, director of  
the Center for Plant Conservation; Gary Krupnik, head of the Plant  
Conservation Unit, Department of Botany, at the Smithsonian; and James  
Miller, dean and vice-president for science of the New York Botanic  

The opening is Saturday, January 23, at the Chicago Botanic Garden in  
Glencoe, IL, right off the I-94 highway. If anyone is coming from out  
of town or sans car, it might be possible for us to arrange pickup at  
the local Metra station - just send me a note! : )

It's sponsored by the ASBA but quite a number of GNSI artists are  
participating, including our very own:

Bobbi Angell,
Carol Hamilton,
Dianne McElwain,
Joan McGann,
Lee McCaffrey,
Lesley Randall,
Beverly Simone,
Alice Tangerini,
Jee Yeon-Woo (and moi ; )).
(Did I leave anyone out? Please excuse any omissions or misspellings  
and pipe up if you are also in the exhibit - I was working from the  
2008 directory!)
It will also move to the New York Botanic Garden, the American Museum  
of Natural History, and hopefully one west coast venue that is now  
being discussed ; ).

So here's the scoop from the note from director of the Midwest Center  
for Botanical Documentation, Derek Norman:
"As some of you may already know Carol Woodin (ASBA Director of  
Exhibits & Botanical Artist)
will be here for the official opening reception of the ASBA Losing  
Paradise? Exhibit -  4 p.m. - 6p.m.
Saturday, 23rd January, at the Chicago Botanic Garden.  I hope  
everyone will be there (together
with as many friends as you care to invite). It promises to be an  
outstanding exhibit/event with unique
local connections.

Hope to see some of you there (and I hope we're not completely  
snowbound that day!)
