Native Birds of Florida by Francesca Anderson

Preservation Foundation of Palm Beach

Artist Francesca Anderson specializes in capturing natural history in her exquisite illustrations of plants and wildlife. Twelve of her scratchboards will be on view in the exhibition Native Birds of Florida at Foundation headquarters from April 11th to May 22nd, 2022.

Native Birds of Florida brings together a selection of Anderson's life-size scratchboard illustrations of birds. The black-and-white images are striking, meticulously drawn from life in exacting detail. All pieces feature Native Florida birds such as the Great White Egret, Black Crowned Night Heron, and Belted Kingfisher. The exhibition's members-only opening reception on April 14th at 6pm will include a special panel with Francesca Anderson and an Audubon representative. Moderated by our Director of Horticulture, Susan Lerner, they will discuss the importance of native birds in relation to our ecosystem.
