Mollie Doctrow, SFCC MOFAC curator, won an Award of Excellence for her black and white woodcut prints during the Lake Wales Art Show, March 24-25. Doctrow’s woodcut prints feature endemic, rare, and endangered plants that grow in Florida’s native habitats.

The Crealde School of Art is currently exhibiting a selection of her woodcut prints. Natural Rhythms/Interlacing Forms: Florida Landscapes by Mollie Doctrow and Lee Dunkel will be on display at the museum in Winter Park, Fla., through May 26. The exhibition features a variety of the unique landscapes and habitats that can be found in Florida. “Natural habitats have always been my focus,” Doctrow said. “When I first started out, I liked getting away from it all and going to these more natural places before they were developed. Over time, I’ve begun to focus on the conservation of these areas now through my art. I think it’s important to show people the beauty of natural places and to help create awareness about these areas.”
