    When Women Were Furniture: How Three Female Botanists and Botanical Illustrators Defined the Odds


    A presentation and discussion by artist and educator Binta Colley.

    Thursday, March 14th, 7 pm.

    The T. W. Wood Gallery, at 46 Barre St. Montpelier, Vermont in the Center for Arts and Learning, is pleased to announce a presentation and discussion with artist and educator Binta Colley. “When Women Were Furniture” explores the position of women in science between the 1600’s – 1800’s. Colley’s talk highlights a study of Mary Delaney, Maria Sibylla Merian, and Jeanne Baret; three female botanists/botanical illustrators who contributed to the field through their art, science and exploration of the flora and fauna of their time. These women defied the odds and were key in building the foundation of botanical and scientific illustration, despite social barriers placed in their paths.

    Binta Colley had an exhibit this year that featured her botanical drawings and illustrations at Northern Vermont University. Colley recently completed a certificate in botanical illustration at The New York Botanical Garden in the Bronx.

    The talk will take place in the Contemporary Gallery and feature the following women botanists and botanical Illustrators:

    Mary Delaney (1700-1788) created over 1000 paper decoupage flowers, whose detail was so exact that they were studied by botanists of the time and are now housed in the Enlightment Exhibit at the British Museum.

    Maria Sibylla Merian (1647-1717) was a German naturalist and scientific illustrator who solved many mysteries surrounding the life cycle of butterflies. Her work helped to dispel the myth of spontaneous generation.

    Jeanne Baret (ca 1720-1790) was a French peasant woman and mistress of the French botanist, Philibert Commerson. As his assistant, she was one of the first women to circumnavigate the globe, but had to do so disguised as a man by cutting her hair and binding her breasts.

    $8 suggested donation per person.

    Also view in the Contemporary Gallery will be an exhibit featuring paintings by Toby Bartles and Ray Brown, “Close to The Cloth” a Textile Exhibition in the Contemporary Hall, and T.W. Wood and WPA permanent collections.

    VCFA MFA in Writing & Publishing Community Classes: What's Underneath: A Creative Nonfiction Writing Workshop

    What’s Underneath: A Creative Nonfiction Writing Workshop
    In this generative workshop, we’ll focus on creative nonfiction in its various forms. We’ll examine how most relatable narrators in nonfiction are often deeply flawed. It is this notion that connects us with the humanity in great writing. But it is also the idea of imperfection that can often be so difficult to write. We’ll talk about our vices and vulnerabilities and how they can be fuel for writing about true life.

There are many Camino routes throughout Europe and the Camino Frances, which has been a pilgrim route for over 1,000 years, has become the most popular route to Santiago. Starting in France they climbed over the Pyrenees and continued west through the Basque country, the Rioja region, Leon e Castilla and Galicia to Santiago de Compostela and then on to Finisterre (“the end of the world”) on the Atlantic coast. They will show photos and videos, talk about their experiences and play medieval and traditional music from the Camino on their newly acquired Galician bagpipes and harp, lute, guitar, recorders, whistle, clarinet and more.

    Suggested donation: $10, kids under 12 free. Proceeds will go to support the Adamant Community Club. Refreshments available.
