Where can you see botanical art in the UK? Well according to my website in rather a lot of places! So much so I've had to reorganise my website to make the information easier to access.
So below is a guide to the various pages sitting under the UK tab on the Exhibitions Menu. One of the pages has also got a new URL!
The main page has a form and guidance to tell you how to tell me about an upcoming exhibition. If you provide good quality information and images you may also get a blog post about your exhibition!
Information about botanical art exhibitions in the UK
Scotland now has a new page dedicated to botanical art exhibitions in Scotland on my website.
The page for UK botanical art exhibitions had become HUGE as there are so many! In trying to make better sense of it, it seemed sensible - as with a lot of the rest of my website - to focus on location.
That's why the Botanical Art and Artists website has all the current and upcoming botanical art exhibitions in Scotland on one page so that those living in or visiting Scotland just have one bookmark to keep an eye on!. (This is also by way of payback to the Scottish botanical artists who are brilliant at keeping me informed about what's happening!)
The main botanical art exhibitions relate to:
What's on offer in Scotland at present is the Spring Show of the Scottish Society of Botanical Artists at the Scottish Arts Club. Two days left before it closes!
Calls for Entries will remain on the main UK Page which now focuses on all the Calls for Entries for botanical art organisations across the UK.
I'll explain more tomorrow how the massive amount of information relating to botanical art exhibitions in the UK is now organised - to help make it all more accessible.
Botanical Images Scotia (BISCOT) has recently called for Assessment Entries from artists for its 2018 exhibition - which is the Scottish equivalent of the RHS Botanical Art Exhibition in London.
This post summarises key points about the exhibition and the process. It's a summary and hence not definitive. You need to read all information published by BISCOT on its website for the definitive version.
Below is an image of the flyer produced for the assessment entries. This can be downloaded at full size from the link below the image.
BISCOT - The Exhibition
The title of the Scottish Exhibition is Flora Scotia: Worldwide Botanical Art Exhibition. Linking People to Plants through Contemporary Botanical Art.
The emphasis of each exhibition (one per country) is on NATIVE Plants. These are those which are indigenous. The definition for the purposes of the worldwide exhibition is as follows.
Any wild plant indigenous to a country, including natural hybrids, but excluding any cultivar, man-made hybrids and naturalised exotics.
Katherine Tyrrell writes about botanical art and artists and has followers all over the world.
