The 4th Annual Botanical & Floral Art Exhibition opens at Bloom in the Park today (Thursday 2nd June 2016).
The exhibition includes 56 botanical artworks in watercolour, gouache, ink, drawing or fine art print by artists from all over Ireland. This year it has gone international and includes entries from botanical artists from Korea.

during the Bloom in the Park Festival in Phoenix Park, Dublin
Dates: 2nd - 6th June 2016
Times: 9am - 6pm

The exhibition was hung in The Gallery at the Phoenix Park Visitors Centre by Yanny Petters, Holly Somerville, Lynn Stringer and Siobhan Larkin on Monday.
Awards and medals for the artwork will be announced later today following the judging. I'll be doing a blog post later this week about who won the awards and this will include photos of what the exhibition looks like.

All artwork is for sale and you also get to meet and talk with some of the artists - and maybe buy a beautiful painting for your home or office!
Note about Bloom in the Park
Bloom in the Park is based on the success of similar successful formats such as the RHS Chelsea Flower Shows and RHS Hampton Court Palace shows. It is sponsored by Bord Bia - the Irish government agency charged with the promotion, trade development and marketing of the Irish food, drink and horticulture industry.
This exhibition of botanical art by Irish artists will be held at the Ranelagh Arts Centre at 26 Ranelagh, Dublin 6 between 5th and 19th May 2016. (click the link to see location on a map of Dublin)
