  1. This will be a spectacular exhibit. I hope to be there on Friday evening and plan to bring a couple of friends on Saturday.

  2. Thanks for that reminder, Gail. As your article in The Nature Artists Quarterly pointed out, she has been an illustrator since the 1930’s, and a member of the Nature Artists’ Guild for 30 years. Not only has she contributed to Vogue, Parade and Harper’s, she has illustrated award-winning books and is an accomplished botanical artist, portrait artist and naturalist as well. Looking forward to seeing her work!

    • Gail has not been an artist since the 1930s, But Luciana Peters has! Thought I should make that clear. Denise, you just gave me a very good laugh.

      • Thanks for making that clear, Gail. Of course, we all know you are a baby-boomer. Weren’t you at Woodstock?

      • I was at Woodstock. I’m in the movie too!
        Remember the part with all the mud? HA! I sent you some photos of L.P.’s work. I cannot wait to see all of Nancy Wu’s work. Her work is so amazing.

  3. There will be an additional smaller exhibit on Friday night in the Sterling Library featuring Luciana Peter’s work. We will celebrate our 97 and 1/2 year old member. She is a gem and her artwork is amazing!
