The Society of Botanical Artists is again exhibiting at the Palmengarten in Frankfurt as it has in the past - on a biennial basis. Their fourth exhibition opens today (21st of October 2016) and continues until the 20th November, from 11am to 5pm.
The theme for this year's exhibition is based on plants found by plant hunters and collectors, past and present. This year the exhibition will contain contemporary artwork by members of the SBA and a selection of historical artwork and plant illustrations on loan - mainly from the late 18th and early 19th century.
It goes without saying - but I will(!) - that the Society of Botanical Artists have a fabulous team of volunteers (both members and significant others) and a well oiled process for delivering the artwork and getting it all set up and looking great in time for the preview!
It's an essential component of any botanical art exhibition which aims to operate at a professional level and this one looks great! I only wish I were able to see it in person.
