Plantae 2020 is now in its second year at the Mall Galleries in London.
From botanical illustration to botanical art, from jewellery to sculpture to hand pulled prints; in fact artwork in any medium is welcome, except photography.
Mall Galleries have now informed us that the gallery is closed with immediate effect until further notice (19 March 2020)
This is to inform you that as well as ‘hand in’ being cancelled, the gallery has closed until further notice. We do not know what this means for our show, Plantae 2020.
Right now it is hard to envisage the show going ahead as so much has to happen before it, but we are just not in a position to say much. So we won’t!
We have no more information right now, so are really unable to answer questions, not least as many of us are holed up with vulnerable relatives and or trying to sort out other urgent arrangements.
We are thinking of all our artists and members and send our very best wishes, especially as some of our artists are more senior in years and most of us have older or more vulnerable family members – these are difficult and challenging times for us all. One great comfort is being joined with each other in solidarity within our artistic community. Let the creating continue!
