The RHS Lindley Library remains closed for the time being - but has started having exhibitions again!
The exhibitions are online and include:
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.
However you can see much larger images of the work in the online exhibition.
So if you're an RHS member and have not got your online account sorted yet, now's the time to do it!
Don't forget - next Sunday is the third and final botanical art surgery with an expert in botanical illustration at Kew Gardens.
Expert: Deborah Lambkin
Venue: Main Gallery of the Shirley Sherwood Art Gallery, Royal Botanic Gardens Kew
Date: Sunday 17th February 2019
Time: 11am - 3pm
It's a great way of being able to ask questions about your own work and also about life as a professional botanical illustrator.
