Society of Botanical Artists, The Language of Flowers

 In a previous post I wrote that I had 3 silk paintings accepted for the annual exhibition of the Society of Botanical Artists and here I am there with my work. Photography is not allowed without permission and quite rightly so. So this is the only photo I have from the exhibition.

If you would like to see some of the work there is an excellent review here
and there you can see one of my favourites    Abies koreana 'Carron' (£5,500) Robert McNeill Assoc SBA
It is a big exhibition and I would say well worth visiting. Entry is free.

Every day there is a demonstration by one of the members of the society.

There are some very fine botanical works as well as a  with a wide variety of other interpretations,
Society of Botanical Artists annual exhibition, The Language of Flowers is currently showing at the Westminster Galleries, Westminster Central Hall opposite Westminster Abbey.
and runs till Sunday 21st April, more details here
