It’s been a very busy weekend for the Society at the RHS London Botanical Art show at the Lindley Library. The SBA was well represented there with stands hosted by SBA members aswell as its own. Congratulations goes to member Bridgette James who was awarded a silver-gilt medal for her collection of Allium paintings.

The RHS botanical art show in London is taking place on the 24th and 25th of February at the RHS Lindley hall in London. The SBA will have a stand there and hopefully there will be many gold medal winners. This is a show not to be missed.  

Palmengarten award winners

Here are the award winning paintings from the SBA exhibition at Palmengarten in Frankfurt which has now finished. Congratulations to Billy Showell and Susan Christopher Coulson for the People’s choice and Denise Heywood for the Great Art Award.


A tired team but the hard work is now completed for Palmengarten. Just the electricians to come and sort some lighting issues and the SBA is ready to show a fine exhibition in Frankfurt. A big thanks goes to all those who made this easy to do, and to the artists who have top quality works to exhibit. Click here for a preview on our Facebook Page –Palmengarten-2016
