Every year the Royal Horticultural Society has a mini Botanical Art Show at the RHS Malvern Spring Festival in May.
This year's RHS medal winners at Malvern are listed below - and apologies for this being a week late! I'm also very happy to add in any photos by any of the exhibitors if they'd care to contact me

One of the things I've observed that happens often when international artists exhibit at the RHS Botanical Art Shows is that they come with a friend or colleague from their botanical art society or country. That means they're not on their own and have got some help and support from somebody who speaks their language. Not an issue with Australians from ACT - but you get my drift! I think it's a really great idea.
In terms of exhibiting at Malvern, there's some jolly good reasons for exhibiting there:
Many thanks to Holly Somerville (Website | Facebook) for allowing me to use her photos of the display by the Irish Society of Botanical Artists.
