Jonathan Cooper's Park Walk Gallery typically has a solo exhibition by Rosie Sanders every other year. This Saturday her latest offering - Rosie Sanders - Secret Letters opens at the gallery in Chelsea - just off the Fulham Road.
If you need an excuse - or a temptation - to visit take a look at the paintings on
The exhibition will be an exciting journey of discovery, as each painting will be accompanied by a letter explaining its inspiration and genesis, whether a plant glimpsed in late afternoon light on a woodland walk, or lovingly grown in the artist’s own garden. Each will be enclosed in an envelope hand-made and illustrated by Rosie Sanders, making the show a unique insight into the world of a remarkable British artist.
Read about the box that Rosie commissioned to hold all the Secret Letters - one for every painting in the exhibition
To see more of Rosie's past paintings either visit the paintings gallery on her website or view the past exhibitions on the Jonathan Cooper website. She's been having solo shows there on a regular basis - about every 18 -24 months - since 2002.
Rosie paints all of her large paintings using large sheets of Arches 640gsm/300lb Cold Pressed paper which are available in 101.6 x 152.4 cm / 40 x 60 in; 105 x 75 cm / 29.5 x 41 in and 56 x 76 cm / 22 x 30 in - which she doesn't stretch. You can read more about her large scale flower painting techniques in my MAM blog posts below.

This morning I updated the RHS Botanical Arts Shows page on my website which is dedicated to:
I've done a radical edit of the content and sequencing of information to make it more logical.
It now includes sections for:
RHS Botanical Art Show 2018
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
"British Artists in the Shirley Sherwood Collection" does not have a catalogue and there is no list of artists and artworks available at the Shirley Sherwood Gallery. Whenever I've reviewed in the past I've spent ages writing down names and titles - so I asked Kew for the list of artists and works and they've very kindly supplied the labels list.
I'm now converted this into the condensed text list below - mainly so I have a basis for making notes about the paintings as I'm back in the gallery this morning to start my 'homework' for the review proper.
However by including it here, you may well find this list tempts you over to Kew Gardens for a visit!
How this list works
