Palmengarten Exhibition 2018

The Seasonal Garden

We are all looking forward to the private view on 25 October at 7pm, which will take place in the Palm House as in previous years.  Our hosts for 2018 include Floria Landgravine of Hesse, the new director of the Palmengarten Dr Katja Heubach and, of course, our own President of the Society Billy Showell.  The new Head of Culture at the Palmengarten Patricia Germandi will introduce the exhibition.

There are over 150 pieces of art on display and this year we are offering two workshops, on 3 November and 10 November.  This is the first time we have done this and the places are being snapped up.

As most of you know, we have a competition for the best in show, this year supported by Boesner art supplies who are donating a Schminke watercolour set as first prize and a painting easel as second prize.  Visitors will also be able to win an art prize in a draw for a wooden boxed set of Polychromos coloured pencils, kindly donated by Faber Castell.

The image that you will recognize here is Julie Whelan’s ‘Cannonball Tree’, chosen as the main work for promoting the exhibition, there are of course several others ………

It’s going to be a great show so come along and join us!
