The Botanical Art Worldwide Exhibition has a brand new and fabulous website at https://www.botanicalartworldwide.info.
One of the great things about it are the wonderful images used on some of the pages which highlight the diversity of plant life on earth and in the different participating countries.
The website includes an ABOUT page highlighting the goals of the project, the participating countries and how the project is organised. I see somebody agreed with me that 'a global view' was the appropriate image for the top of the page! (see my page on the Worldwide Exhibition of Botanical Art 2018 in the Exhibition section - which has a summary on one page). I like the little leaf icons to indicate which countries are participating.
It also has sections devoted to Events and News. (The latter needs a method for subscribing to news - but I'm sure that will arrive as news begins to get posted)
The Countries section highlights all the participating countries, plus links to where more information can be found about that country's exhibition (calls for entries; dates and venue of the exhibition etc.). Some countries have created independent websites for the exhibition which are seperate from the relevant organisation for that country.
The names of their exhibitions which, to date, are as follows (link to the page embedded below in the name of the exhibition).
This is not the order on the website - but 'Botanical Art and Artists' does everything by continent so I'm reordering the list in this blog post into continents!
Note: For those wondering..... The website is using SquareSpace (I know one when I see one!). This has been a top web-ware solution for some years for those needing well designed and high performing websites with templates well suited to art websites. I've been wondering what would be chosen for this global initiative and I'm really pleased with the choice - it's one of my favourites. I have every confidence it will cope well as the exhibition expands and the associated website needs to expand and needs galleries / videos etc. The virtual exhibition will look brilliant!
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.
