First Friday Art Night - Annie Zygarowicz

October 4, 2019 | 5 - 8 pm
Museum of the Earth's Gift Shop

Visit the Museum of the Earth's Gift Shop on First Friday Art Night, October 4, 2019, to see portraits of scientists, naturalists, and scientific illustrators in the new exhibit by Annie Zygarowicz. The Museum will be open for extended evening hours.

In this special exhibit for the Museum, Annie Zygarowicz combines her love for scientific illustration, science and character design by painting unique portraits of scientists and artists who, with their passion and curiosity, have educated and inspired us with new, exciting discoveries for centuries.

A life-long painter, illustrator, sculptor, and graphic designer, Annie graduated from the School of Visual Arts with BFA in illustration, and since has freelanced as an editorial illustrator for national magazines and journals. Annie’s “Zygdesignz Studio” works with clients producing branding and promotional material, tourism brochures and maps, as well as educational products for children. As an illustrator, she has rediscovered her love for children’s books and began writing/ illustrating her own stories as well as illustrating books for other authors.

Her portfolio includes digital and traditionally rendered art and illustrations of character design, sculptural pieces, art for editorial, artwork for licensing and more recently, paintings of plants, flowers and birds. In 2017, she became a member of the Guild of Natural Science Illustrators.

Light refreshments will be served. Special evening $5 admission rates apply to Museum exhibits. Admission to the show in the Museum's Gift Shop is free, the artwork will be on display through the end of November.
