Leicestershire Society of Botanical Illustrators is now online with:
Plus they have an exhibition coming up - “A Medieval Cornucopia” at Leicester's Guildhall - of which more when I have the details. The Society has previously exhibited at the Shirley Sherwood Gallery, Kew Gardens, London in 2011
As yet they don't have a list of their members online on heir website but I'm sure this will come in time
The conditions of membership are as follows - and other local botanical art societies might want to make a note of the conditions with respect to continued membership and members allowed to exhibit.
Selection: Membership is by invitation only. The assessment process occurs twice a year and artists are invited to become members only after they have submitted six artworks for assessment which meet the required standard.
Continued Membership: It's very nice to see an art society making sure that its membership only comprises active members and not those who apply purely to get the signature status! Annual membership is dependent on attendance at a minimum of 10 weekly meetings during the year
Exhibiting members: Members are not allowed to exhibit with the Society until they have attended at least 20 meetings during the previous year. I think this is very sensible as , for a local botanical art society, this effectively limits the exhibiting members to those who can get to the venues used easily and means there's no scope for opting out on helping when it comes to providing help with the organisation of the exhibitions and/or stewarding!
