Our online show Plantae 21 was a great success, where we not only show-cased our talented Fellow members but also our Foundation members, the recent graduates from our Distance Learning Diploma Course. Here is a little selection of their work and to say congratulations to them all. If you’re interested in becoming an SBA student, then the next course is Course 19 which begins in January 2022. You can find out more information on signing up to our DLDC here.. Click the image below to view the gallery….
The Exploring Botany exhibition is on at the Manggha Museum, Kraków. The exhibition has extended its opening due to the pandemic and is now running from February until 30 June 2021.
SBA fellow Christina Hart-Davies has just launched a new online exhibition of her lichen paintings. Christina has been painting lichens and mosses for many years, winning an impressive five RHS Gold Medals for her collections (1984, 1986, 1988, 1992, 2018). Now, some of those award winning paintings are for available to buy. To view the exhibition, please visit www.christinahartdavies.co.uk/love-lichens/
Congratulations to SBA Fellow Guy William Eves, whose beautiful graphite drawings of Chestnut trees were recently acquired by Ipswich Mueum. These very detailed drawings are of a chestnut tree that grows beside Christchurch Cathedral, and were featured in an exhibition at Ipswich Art Gallery, Art Forms in Nature. The exhibition also featured work by Karl Blossfeldt, whose striking black and white photographs have influenced many botanical artists today.
Congratulations to Robert McNeill SBA Fellow, who has his stunning painting Banksia speciosa and two others selected for this forthcoming exhibition in Poland. The extensive exhibition will be an innovative project in Europe, a project that will connect botanical artists from the West and Japan, showing the works of historical masters and contemporary works.
