“Steven Kasher Gallery is proud to present the exhibition National Geographic: The Past and Future Present. It is the gallery’s fifth show of works from the National Geographic archives, but our first that presents vintage illustrations side by side with vintage photographs. The one hundred works presented span the entire 20th century. Photographers will include Herbert Ponting, Baron von Gloeden, Maynard Owen Williams, and Hiram Bingham. Illustrators will include Thornton Oakley, Louis Agassi Fuertes, and Tom Lovell. The exhibition will encompass works that represent National Geographic’s rich history in the fields of geography, archaeology, exploration, science, wildlife and world cultures.”
My exhibition space. Due to Uni closing the day before deadline then moving the deadline forward, it’s not as good as I’d hoped but oh well. I’d have liked to print them on decent paper and maybe even get some cheap frames. Nevermind ey?
Trogan and Bromeliad by Jennifer Kane
‘Jennifer’s careful observations of Southeast Alaska’s plants and animals are recorded in beautiful watercolor images. She collects, dissects, and inspects with her brush, and her methodical style of painting results in detailed and colorful compositions that are both sensitive and scientific.’

2012 Student Scientific & Medical Illustration Juried Exhibit
“This years exhibition will be the 20th year that the two schools, UGA and Georgia Health Sciences University (previously MCG), have joined forces to create the exhibition of student work. Many of the UGA students will go on to graduate school in medical illustration while the Graduate Students at the GHSU will push on to their professional careers. This exhibition is one of their first opportunities to exhibit their work and have professional illustrators judge them on their problem solving, creativity, accuracy and technical proficiency. Its a great exhibition and one that I am very proud of in its entire existence over the past 20 years.”
