40th Anniversary of the School of Botanical Art & Illustration at Denver Botanic Gardens
This is a lovely video about the activities of the School of Botanical Art & Illustration at Denver Botanic Gardens. It was made to celebrate:
Below is the video on the (public) Facebook Page for the SBAI but if you prefer to view on YouTube this is the link
The video highlights how the School is only the third group to win an RHS Gold Medal (in 2017) in the history of the Royal Horticultural Society - and I was extremely pleased to be able to photograph Mervi Hjelmroos-Koski, Ph.D., D.Sc. at the time. Mervi led the School as Manager for the last 13 years until her retirement earlier this year. Much of what I have admired about the School has been down to initiatives by Mervi.
I'm looking forward to meeting up with her again when Covid lets her husband and her embark on their retirement tour of Europe!

You've got one more day to visit the botanical art exhibits at the RBGE Graduation Show at the Royal Botanic Garden in Edinburgh by the international students who have just completed their RBGE Diploma in Botanical Illustration this summer.
(This would have been earlier but for my recent computer woes/hard drive failure - I only got my photoshop software working again this morning!)
Fortunately Elaine Searle was visiting earlier this month for the Graduation ceremony and took photos and sent them to me - so below is a record of the graduates, what they chose to do for their portfolios and pics of their exhibit.
The Diploma show is a showcase of work from the RBGE Diplomas in Botanical Illustration, Herbology and Plantsmanship courses.
