‘Science As Art’ exhibit in White Rock from Kelowna

WHITE ROCK — White Rock Museum & Archives this month presents a travelling exhibit called Science As Art: Botanical Illustration of Canadian Tree Fruit Varieties.

Created by Kelowna Museums, the exhibit features 10 watercolour paintings by Kelowna artist Joanne Beaulieu. This collection of works tells the tale of successful research stations in B.C. and Ontario and features improvements Canadian plant breeders have made to the history of new plant cultivation, both locally and internationally.

Also featured are displays from local horticultural organizations, including Darts Hill Garden Park, Alexandra Community Garden and Derry’s Orchard and Nursery.

The exhibit offers a chance to learn about how these groups help shape the gardening scene of the Semiahmoo Peninsula and Fraser Valley.

The exhibit will run from Jan. 14 until March 31. During this time, the museum will host presentations and demonstrations by professionals in the field, on topics ranging from apple grafting to honey bees and pollination. For dates and times, visit www.whiterock.museum.bc.ca or the museum’s Facebook page.
