This year we plan to hold our 14th Annual Botanic Art Exhibition, “From the Desert to the Sea” from 3 April to 2 May in the Visitors’ Gallery .  The exhibition will be open every day from 9.30am to 4.30pm.  There will be a special feature on plants from arid regions.  All Friends are invited to a special preview of the exhibition on Friday 2 April from 2pm to 4pm when paintings are for sale before the exhibition is open to the public.  This is an opportunity to have first choice of the many outstanding art works. 

Botanical art takes many hours of careful attention to detail so members have been preparing work for some months now. All artworks are judged by a team of botanists from the Gardens to ensure accuracy, and by two artists, Sharon Field and Margaret Saul, to ascertain artistic merit, before being hung in this exhibition.  Artists may enter one other painting not subject to formal judging, the Artist’s Choice.

Commissions from sales raise funds for the Friends who support the Gardens in so many ways.
