Plantae and the DLDC 2022

Our open annual exhibition was a great success, with good visitor numbers and sales.

The students also had a guided trip to the Chelsea Physic Garden in London and then Course 17 had its graduation ceremony in the evening. Congratulations to all our students. It’s been a busy week!!

Petal Moments

Nicola Lynch Morrin SBA Fellow, has an exhibition called Petal Moments, on now until the 31st May. It is on at the Séamus Ennis Arts Centre, Dublin, Ireland.

Her flower portraits attempt to capture and celebrate the delicacy, transparency, and transitory effects of petal moments.  This allows the viewer to contemplate the fragility and continual beauty of life itself.
