A special new exhibition will open this week The Gibbes Museum of Art. It showcases work by Mark Catesby and is titled Artist, Scientist, Explorer: Mark Catesby in the Carolinas. The show, which runs from May 12 – September 24, 2017, features 44 watercolor paintings by English artist, scientist and explorer Mark Catesby generously lent by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II from the British Royal Collection.

“The Carolinas, and particularly the city of Charleston, is a significant location in the fascinating story of Catesby’s life and work,” said Angela Mack, executive director of the Gibbes. “We are honored to host this special exhibition and provide a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to bring Catesby’s original watercolor paintings to the very location that inspired their creation.”
