2016 Annual Open Exhibition:
Shape Pattern Structure


The Society presents a more contemporary title for the exhibition in 2016 but don’t be confused: nature throws up an abundance of shapes, patterns and structures within the plant kingdom. The variety of each of these elements is astounding and all are designed to suit a specific purpose: habitat, climate, survival or propagation. We hope you will be inspired to look at plants in a new light as these three words portray important aspects of botanical art and nature’s diversity.

This year, for the first time the Society invited artists to submit work digitally for pre selection.  Please note that digital entries have now closed.  Anyone who applied digitally can visit our results page from 31st January to see if their work/s have been successful.

We are also still accepting work for selection by the normal process at our Hand In Day on Monday 22nd February.  Artists who can apply by this method include non members.   Further details can be found within the terms and conditions document accessible from the link below.
