EVENT DETAILS
Plants and Flowers of Maine: Kate Furbish’s Watercolors
Melissa Dow Cullina
 
In the late-nineteenth and early-twentieth century, in a field dominated by men, Kate Furbish (1834–1931) made a name for herself traveling the length and breadth of Maine, collecting, classifying, and illustrating the native flora of the state. In the course of her solitary travels, she discovered two previously unknown plants, which are named for her. She devoted sixty years of her life to this endeavor, and produced hundreds of illustrations, most of which are now housed at the Bowdoin College Library in Brunswick. Melissa Cullina, research botanist and former director of education at Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens, who wrote the introduction to the recently-published Plants and Flowers of Maine: Kate Furbish’s Wildflowers, the first ever catalog of Furbish’s artwork, will shed some light on the life and work of this fascinating woman.
