This is about the medal winners from the 4th Annual Botanical & Floral Art Exhibition opens at Bloom in the Park.
The exhibition had a very busy first day on Thursday with numbers visiting the Garden Festival up by 4000 on the first day alone! This resulted in good sales and over 25% of the paintings were sold on the first night!
The exhibition was opened on Thursday 2nd June and medals presented by Seamus O'Brien, head gardener (and plant hunter) of Kilmacurragh Botanic Gardens who has been enormously supportive of the development of botanical art in Ireland. He can be seen below with Yanny Petters who helped organise the exhibition.
Links in the names of the medal winners below are to their websites. Where there is no link there is no website. The link is only included in the first mention of the name of the artist.
