I am delighted to announce that The Shirley Sherwood Collection now has a Facebook Page - which you can find here https://www.facebook.com/shirleysherwoodcollection/
We can certainly expect to see announcements about the current and upcoming exhibitions at The Shirley Sherwood Gallery of Botanic Art at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew.
Given Dr Sherwood has always been a big supporter of the artists as well as the art I think we can also expect to hear news about the artists who have work in the collection.
Plus I have my fingers crossed and hope we might also get to see any new botanical artwork that is being added to the collection. This is a collection which now amounts to very nearly 1,000 artworks collected in the last 25+ years.
The "Learn More" button at the tope of the page takes you straight to the Gallery's page on the Kew website.
Today I've published two new Pages on Botanical Art and Artists - covering botanical art societies groups and educators. They are additional to the existing page which will, in future, be wholly focused on botanical artists on Facebook.
I started the day thinking I'd update my website page about botanical artists on Facebook and asked for people to let me know if any have been left out.
However I've been contacted by so many people that I've now decided to split it in three and make each of the three pages much more relevant to the section they sit within.
So Botanical Art and Artists now has:
If you know of a Facebook Page or Group that should be included on one of the above please contact me via a comment to this post.
Two announcements today.
I know a lot of people follow botanical art via social media and the use of Twitter and Facebook enables those who use these to follow more easily.
First I've got a brand new page on the website "About Botanical Art and Artists on Facebook" The aim of this page is to create an index of all those people and organisations that have a Facebook Page. It's not yet finished but it's already got a lot of content.
The second is that I've just created a brand NEW Facebook Page associated with this website. Its URL is https://www.facebook.com/botanicalartandartists and it's called (unsurprisingly) Botanical Art and Artists
This complements the recently created Twitter account (the URL for this is https://twitter.com/botanicartists) and the creation of this blog.
It means that I can share more information online without irritating those who are not interested in botanical art!
I'll continue to write about major events on "Making A Mark (such as the upcoming RHS Botanical Art Show) but lots of information about other exhibitions, events and the activities of societies, groups, courses and artists will now be carried by the social media associated with this website.
