Last night was the Private View for the new Botanical Beauty exhibition opening in the Riverside Gallery in Richmond. There are two rooms packed full of botanical art – nearly all are paintings, but happily mine was not the only digital print. It was good to meet up with other botanical artists and see the variety of botanical art on display.
I was pleased to have a digitally created botanical work included in a botanical art exhibition. My piece, entitled ‘Named by Linnaeus’, contains 16 small images of British wild flowers and trees named by Linnaeus mounted within a dark wood frame.
For anyone wanting to visit the gallery, it’s located in the town centre, near to the bridge, in the Old Town Hall. The gallery website gives details of the opening hours – closed on Sundays, but admission is free. The exhibition runs until 1st April 2017.
