Thank you for your understanding.

This group show of the Botanical Artists Guild of Southern California presented on the BAGSC wall at the Brody Botanical Center, The Huntington Library, Art Museum, and Botanical Gardens explores the fantastic forms and colors of cacti and succulents.

Succulents are fleshy plants that store water. This ability makes them ideal for hot, dry climates like Southern California. Included in the “succulent category” are Cacti which are succulents with areoles (small bumps on the cacti where clusters of spines grow). This group of plants offers a vast array of opportunities for the artist to find a plant to love.

The BAGSC Exhibition will be up during the Cactus and Succulent Society of America's two-day show and three full days of sales. BAGSC will have a booth with sales too! Keep checking back for more information as the dates get closer.

Cycads

This BAGSC group exhibition at The Huntington Library, Art Museum, and Botanical Gardens will dive into Cycads, ancient seed-producing plants that flourished during the Jurassic Period (about 206 to 144 million years ago). These living fossils grow in tropical and subtropical regions of the world today, and The Huntington has a breathtaking collection.

For botanical artists, these plants present a unique challenge.
