The Mahoney Library Gallery is pleased to present 31 pieces from the Alcatraz Florilegium created by artists of the Northern California Society of Botanical Artists. The collection was created in collaboration with the Garden Conservancy and the Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy to create a florilegium, or series of botanical drawings and paintings to document the Gardens of Alcatraz. Fifty-nine pieces are currently in the collection with thirty-one represented in the Mahoney Library gallery exhibit. The other pieces are on display virtually at the Northern California Society of Botanical Artists website:

The Northern California Society of Botanical Artists is an association dedicated to supporting botanical artists. Join the SRJC art community during the artist's reception to meet many of the artists and hear about their inspiration and techniques.
