Cultivating Place: October's Botanical Artistry, Part 3: Julia Lucey & Aquatint Etching

Sarah Deragon

There’s an ancient association between the botanical world and the inspiration it provides to artists of all kinds. For our Botanical Artistry series part 3, we meet Julia Lucey, whose painterly aquatint etching collage pieces evocatively depict the rich personalities of native flora and fauna.  Join us!

In case you didn't hear, the Cultivating Place team now has a donate button! We thank you so much for listening as over the years we've discussed expanding our views on the powerful nature of gardens, plants, and gardeners as intersectional spaces and agents of change for the better in our world. We hope you'll support Cultivating Place and we can't thank you enough for making it possible for this young program to grow even more of these types of conversations.
