From 7:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m.
Join 2020 Lloyd Artist-in-Residence, Melissa Haviland, as she discusses her project Flourish, from on-site research to her work in the studio. Flourish includes more than 200 screen prints of botanical illustration printed on handmade linen paper that will be installed with wallpaper created to compliment the screen-printed plants. While in residence at the Lloyd, Havilland researched early travel and botanical illustration with a focus on cash crops of the past and present, examining their economies and those who have prospered.
