Flights on Fancy by students of Sally Markell
May 3- June 1


Flights of Fancy is an exhibition of student works from Sally Markell's recent drawing workshop.   During the six-week course, students learned about bird anatomy and feather direction as well as the use of graphite and colored pencils. Sally is a frequent instructor in the Art Education department at Memphis Botanic Garden. Her delicate drawings and watercolors of both bird and botanicals are popular with garden lovers.
