The Society invites artists to submit their very best work to our open exhibition. Whether an artist working in watercolour, oils, gouache, graphite, colour pencil or pen & ink, a botanical illustrator, a printmaker, ceramic artists, sculptor, jeweller or glass artist, we are seeking work with a strong exhibiting presence to be part of our show at Mall Galleries in 2020.

The hand in on Saturday at The Mall Galleries went smoothly. It was a lovely opportunity to catch up with old friends and meet artists who have entered work into the exhibition in June. Posted by SBA – The Society of Botanical Artists on Sunday, 14 April 2019
