These works were specifically chosen by the members of the Connecticut Natural Science Illustrators (CTNSI) to accurately depict specific species, rendered in the traditional media and techniques of natural science illustration.

The artists exhibiting work will be: Cindy Gilbane, Susannah Graedel, Linda Miller, Dorie Petrochko, and Jan Prentice. Founded in 2009, CTNSI is a group of professional artists offering an educational art program in natural science illustration, in collaboration with the Yale Peabody Museum at its west campus in Orange, CT.

CTNSI regularly shows their work in museums, galleries, and nature centers in the Greater New York area, furthering their mission to “educate the public about the field of natural science illustration.” In addition to exhibiting their works, CTNSI offers classes of all levels in drawing and painting natural history subjects and habitats.
