TAEM- When does science become art? The answer is when you cross botany with photography. I have found no truer answer than with the work of Jackie Bailey Labovitz. I chanced meeting her on a drive to Sperryville, Virginia where she is the curator of an art studio there known as Cottage Curator.

TAEM- Jackie, the tour of your studio was simply breathtaking and a must for our readers. Please tell us how you chose this location and where we can find it.

The Cottage, formerly the architecturally charming Rappahannock County schoolhouse located at the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains in the historic village of Sperryville Virginia, is the perfect place. Exquisite light streams through the original glass panes of floor to ceiling windows where first and second graders once sat. And “Little” Washington and the Shenandoah National Park are nearby neighbors.
