Narrative Botanics by Gabriella Boros

Gabriella Boros's love for narrative is derived from the rich heritage of her European parentage, Israeli childhood and American Influences. The inspiration for Narrative Botanics is her love of nature and science. These five bodies of work integrate narrative elements to show the inextricable tie between plants and humans. Each series highlights plants as both visual element and utilitarian agent. The structures of woodblock printmaking in black and white results in complex graphic images. Her prints are almost always created as a series. The truths she narrates are very personal, but the resulting images have a universal appeal. 

Opening Reception: Thursday, September 26th 6-8pm

Exhibit Dates: September 6th to October 13th, 2019

Dittmar Memorial Gallery, established in 1972, is a student-operated gallery that enlightens and challenges the Northwestern University community with the works of emerging and underrepresented artists from the Chicago area and the Midwest. The staff at Dittmar is dedicated to developing and fostering the Northwestern community’s awareness of the changing attitudes and trends in the art world. We invite artists who work in the contemporary vein, as well as artists who offer an alternative perspective that hinges on the periphery of the art world. In essence, our goal is to provide well-deserved exposure to those outside or on the margins of the mainstream art world.
