Botanical drawings featured at gallery


The artist of the month for April is Arthur Van Deventer at Crescent Harbor Gallery, 140 Marine Way. Van Deventer was the husband of andquot;natural born botanistandquot; and Del Norte icon Ruby Van Deventer, and in his later years (up until his death in 1977) painted and drew about 1,000 specimens of the flowers, ferns and grasses that his wife collected and studied. Samples of his works - most of which are the actual size of the flowers, are flawlessly accurate, and have been professionally framed by Rick Bennett - are available for viewing, along with the works of other gallery members. Hours are 11 a.m.-4 p.m. daily.
