Kelsey Jordan Exit Show, featuring frogs from our Conservation Collection!

Kelsey Jordan, an intern in the Garden's Department of Conservation Research and student at the University of Georgia held her exit show this past Monday at The Lamar Dodd School of Art.

Kelsey is completing the scientific illustration program at UGA and her exhibit featured water color paintings as well as pencil sketches of frog species from the Atlanta Botanical Garden's amphibian conservation program. Her work highlights the unique parental care adaptations of the frog species she selected.

I had the privilege of working with her at the onset of her thesis, and was amazed at her preliminary sketches throughout the collections and exhibits at the Garden. I included some of the pencil sketches in this post as I think they are equally fantastic.
