Enduring Beauty: Orchid Portraits of the RHS
The RHS has employed an official artist to paint beautiful life-size portraits of orchids for over 120 years.
This exhibition opened in the Library just before lockdown started. It was going to provide a spectacular display of recent RHS orchid portraits - including the latest portraits by current RHS Orchid Artist, Deborah Lambkin.
Deborah is the ninth official RHS orchid painter since the first postholder was appointed in 1897

Worth a Thousand Words
This digital exhibition is the equivalent of the exhibition held in the Lindley Library during the RHS Botanical Art Show in 2018.
"Worth a Thousand Words" is about the RHS Gold Medal winning paintings in the botanical art collection.You can see:
In this instance, the digital exhibition is for RHS Members only - or rather those who have got an online RHS account (like me!)
However everybody can read more about that exhibition - and see some of the images - in my blog post Worth a Thousand Words - exhibition at the RHS.

The Association of British Botanical Artists (ABBA) have announced their Call for Entries for their next botanical art exhibition called "Purely Botanical" - and it opens for submissions today. (I was alerted to this by ABBA after publishing my last post - and they very kindly sent me the details this morning!)
As an Association of Botanical Artists our focus is on reflecting accurately the natural beauty of plants that surround us, particularly native plants.
