I've been thinking for some time that it's about time somebody started running art fairs for those interested in artwork involving plants.
Not necessarily an art fair which is strictly botanical - because a wider range of quality artwork about plants brings in more people - and that, in turn, enables more potential art collectors to see and appreciate botanical art.
It would seem The Garden Museum in Lambeth had the same idea.....
Super Nature is London’s first fair for art inspired by plants
Dates: Saturday 10th - Sunday 11th October 2020
Hours: 10:30 am - 5:00 pm).
Tickets: £5 online and £7.50 at the door.
I'm also guessing there will be a limit on numbers so 'first come, first served"?
It includes artwork being exhibited by 25 participating artists and three workshops. for more details see below
UPDATE: I understand from Sarah Jane Humphrey that she is not now participating and I've written to the Garden Museum seeking clarification re events and artists.
UPDATE 2: The page on their website has now been updated and the ONLY artists participating in this art fair are:
I didn't see a Call for Entries so I'm guessing that the participating artists may have been invited as there are a limited number and a fairly eclectic mix (including established still life artists) - but all sound artists using a variety of media and approaches to portrait plants.
I also noticed that there were some names I recognised - from the Society of Botanical Artists - and another artist who has work included in my book!
The artists are listed below. Click the link to see their website. I've split them into botanical artists - or at least those who draw accurately and the remainder who are more impressionistic
