The Annual Exhibition of the Society of Botanical Artists had its Private View on Thursday. I managed to get Billy Showell in front of her HUGE painting of peonies which were used as the feature image for the exhibition - on the flyers, catalogue and this year a bag too! If you get the opportunity do look at the 5 minute video below where she explains how she created this composition and extremely impressive painting.
The exhibition is at the Central Hall Westminster until Friday 23rd April (11am - 5pm each day). Entry is free and there are daily demonstrations and tours of the exhibition. Plus a great exhibition shop! I think the signed copies of Billy's new book might have sold out!
I was supposed to be writing up the exhibition and who won the prizes and Certificates of Botanical Merit yesterday and today. However I've been greatly preoccupied since Thursday evening by my left knee which is slipping sideways repeatedly and threatening to dislocate. Consequently I've been trying to find and buy a suitable knee braces for the last 24 hours!
Anyway this is to say that you'll find my review and the prizewinners and CBM people over on my Making A Mark blog starting tomorrow!
