This year we are holding our 14th Annual Botanic Art Exhibition, “From the Desert to the Sea” from 3 April to 2 May in the Visitors’ Gallery. The exhibition is open every day from 9.30am to 4.30pm.  There is a special feature on plants from arid regions.

Botanical art takes many hours of careful attention to detail so members have been preparing work for some months now. All artworks are judged by a team of botanists from the Gardens to ensure accuracy, and by two artists, Sharon Field and Margaret Saul, to ascertain artistic merit, before being hung in this exhibition. Artists may enter one other painting not subject to formal judging, the Artist’s Choice.

Commissions from sales raise funds for the Friends who support the Gardens in so many ways.
