Botke Birds and Blossoms at Santa Paula Art Museum
The late Santa Paula artist Jessie Arms Botke (1883 – 1971) remains one of the most treasured decorative painters of the 20th century. Botke’s richly colored and detailed paintings of birds and flora are particularly prized among art collectors. "Botke Birds and Blossoms," an original exhibition produced by the Santa Paula Art Museum, provides a new perspective on Botke’s historic artworks as it explores how her early career as an interior decorator influenced the style and subject matter for which her paintings became most famous. The exhibit’s fresh take on Jessie Arms Botke’s work is revealed in over 30 large-scale oil and watercolor paintings that have never before been exhibited.
Admission is $4 for adults, $3 for seniors, and free for students and members.
"Botke Birds and Blossoms" will be on view through July 8, 2018.
