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.
