Trees are the largest plants on earth and some of the oldest. Bath Society of Botanical Painters (BSBP) took on the daunting challenge of capturing their strong forms and delicate beauty for their NEW exhibition The Amazing World of Trees.
It opened yesterday in Bath - details below.
This exhibition builds on themes we have explored over recent years, and combines our passion for botanical art with an equal passion for exploring and conserving the environment. Trees play a vital role in helping to balance the world’s ecosystems: did you know that trees can communicate with other trees, ward off predators and protect their seedling offspring?
Preparing for an exhibition
In preparation for the exhibition, BSBP ran a number of workshops in different aspects of drawing and painting trees with different tutors ahead of the exhibition in order to get members attuned to the particular demands of representing a tree - given they are a subject not always pursued by all botanical artists. Sounds to me like a great way of developing skills in member artists and a great exhibition at the same time!
Alan Power, Garden and Estate Manager for Stourhead and BBC Presenter, will be giving a talk entitled My Life with Trees and Theirs with Me on 13th October at 7.30. Details of how to book this event on the exhibition page of the website
