GLAF Members Awarded Esther M. Plotnick Award

GLAF Current and Past Members, who also belong to the American Society of Botanical Artists, were recently awarded the Esther M. Plotnick Award, by the organization, at its annual meeting in Pittsburg, PA last week.

"Kishwauketoe: Know Your Natives" won the grant in the Exhibits and Education & Awareness Projects.

The Kishwauketoe Group led by Sandy Kessel, with Jeanne Dyer, Celine Lillie, Lynne Railsback, Kathy Walsh, and Susie Williams, began documenting and painting native species from the Kishwauketoe Nature Conservancy in Williams Bay, Wisconsin in 2017.

In 2019, they organized a two month exhibition at the Green Grocer in Williams Bay, with a percentage of the paintings and cards sold going to the non-profit conservancy. This grant will be used to stage future exhibitions and produce additional educational material for visitors to the conservancy.
