A full-color, illustrated catalogue with biographical data, portraits of the artists and reproductions of the artworks will be available for purchase. Collectively, the 14 International catalogues include 1,129 artists and are the most comprehensive record available of contemporary botanical artists and illustrators. Most of the previous International catalogues are available for purchase at the Institute.


As we have since 1995, we are coordinating activities for the 14th International artists and the registrants of the American Society of Botanical Artists educational conference, which is held every three years in Pittsburgh during the opening weekend of the International exhibition. Many botanical artists from across the United States and from around the world will be in town to attend.



The exhibition will be on display on the 5th floor of the Hunt Library building at Carnegie Mellon University and will be open to the public free of charge. Hours: Monday–Friday, 9 am–noon and 1–5 pm; Sunday, 1–4 pm (except 24 November and 28 November–1 December). We will also open on Saturday, 28 September, 1–4 pm, during Carnegie Mellon University’s Cèilidh Weekend festivities. Because our hours of operation are occasionally subject to change, please call or email before your visit to confirm. For further information, contact the Hunt Institute at 412-268-2434.
