Denise Walser-Kolar Presents Badgersett Hazel Paintings Going To London

(click for larger view. low-resolution details of larger drawings)

These are all paintings of Badgersett hybrid hazels; we've worked with Ms. Walser-Kolar to provide material for the past two years. Now, we are extremely proud to announce, she has been invited to show her work at the Royal Horticultural Society Botanical Art Show, in London; this March. This event and her work were covered in the Rochester Post Bulletin, a week ago (link no longer working).

We've seen small-scale proofs of all of her works for this exhibit, and they're really quite outstanding! As soon as I get the database updated, we'll be offering at least some of the earliest of this series she did as greeting cards; possibly prints and (with some further work) calendars as well. I also very much look forward to seeing these works in person. Congratulations, Denise!

UPDATE:  She won!!  A Silver Gilt Medal; one of the top awards, which carries with it the right to show any of her work at this show for the next 3 years!  "Congratulations" just isn't a strong enough word!   : - )


  1. Congratulations on being part of that. I hope mine look like those (the bearing ones!) one of these years.
