This is the last weekend of the exhibition by the Gloucestershire Society for Botanical Illustration who are currently showing at Nature in Art (2 miles north of Gloucester). It finishes tomorrow.
All members were able to exhibit their own original work so long as artwork was framed in an acceptable way and labelled correctly.
The GSBI is a long established society.
The Society was formed in 1993 by Michael Hickey (teacher, botanist, writer and illustrator) to cater for all in the County interested in botanical illustration, whether as botanists, botanical illustrators, gardeners or those involved in the collection and appreciation of botanical works.
Details of how to join as a member are also available on the website.
Members get a half yearly newsletter containing reviews of events and details of forthcoming exhibitions and courses which may be of interest to members.
It also has a very well developed website and set of activities. Details of events and reviews can be found on the website. These include
As with all art societies there is also the opportunity to share your own tips and techniques with other members and learn from their experience.
Plus members can also contribute to an online gallery of artwork.
If you'd like your local botanical art society or group to feature on this blog please send me details of your upcoming exhibitions.
