Familiar Flora: Four Visual Responses to Living with Plants, includes works by artists Melinda Ostraff, Jenny Ostraff, Elise Boucher Ostraff, and Alexis FryerOstraff. The four artists in this show are a mother, a daughter, and two daughters-in-law. They work in a variety of two dimensional media including encaustic, collage, painting, and printmaking. In addition to being artists, they are connected by a love of the plant life that they cultivate in pots and gardens around their homes. Their mother, Melinda, is an ethnobotanist and her knowledge and interests have inspired and intrigued her daughters as they have become familiar with her work. They have come to appreciate more fully how plants are an important part of each of our lives.
