The Society holds a major open exhibition in London, usually annually. In its aim to provide educational content to the public our show contains a variety of work of different subjects, genres, media and content. The consistent theme is that the work is of an excellent standard and is by artists who are at the top of their game. Going forward our exhibitions are titled ‘Plantae’ and encompass the entire plant kingdom, with every art form included, from botanical art to illustration – in fact anything that has plants as the main subject. Media used include watercolour, oil, gouache, graphite, colour pencil, as well as hand pulled prints of many kinds and 3-dimensional work, including glass, sculpture and jewellery. The only criteria is that the work must be excellent and any botanical details must be accurate.
Since 2010, biennial exhibitions have been held at the prestigious Palmengarten Frankfurt, Germany, where interest in the Society has developed steadily ever since.
The Society occasionally stages exhibitions in conjunction with galleries and garden venues throughout England, Wales and further afield whilst its members frequently feature in solo and group exhibitions throughout the UK and overseas. The Society is always interested to hear of additional venues and opportunities to display the magical work of its members.
