About

In the year our country celebrates the 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage, the Lloyd Library’s spring exhibition, Women and Nature in the Arts, Sciences and Letters, opens on March 6. It is a tribute to the female scientists, authors, artists, and illustrators represented in the Lloyd collections.
 
The exhibition will feature works by naturalists, botanists, mycologists, horticulturists, and explorers, including pioneers of scientific illustration Maria Sibylla Merian (1647-1717) and Elizabeth Blackwell (1707-1758), and designer of over 400 gardens, Gertrude Jekyll. Two of the more visually stunning books on display will be Familiar Indian Flowers by Lena Lowis (1878) and Illustrations of the Fungi of Our Fields and Woods by Sarah Price (1864). The Lloyd Gallery will feature Four Seasons at Burnet Woods, photography by Rama Kasturi.
