Foundation Gallery

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….

Love Lichens

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/

Ipswich Museum

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.
