To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Chelsea Physic Garden Florilegium Society, an exhibition by some of today’s finest botanical artists will be held in the Gallery.

A new book of botanical art celebrating 20 years of the Chelsea Physic Garden Florilegium Society 'Botanical Illustration from Chelsea Physic Garden' has been published by the Antique Collectors' Club. My painting of Allium subhirsutum is included.

Another of my paintings 'Horse Chestnut', from the Shirley Sherwood Collection, is part of the 'The Joy of Spring' exhibition that runs from 21st February to 9th August at the Shirley Sherwood Gallery in Kew Gardens.


I've added a page on all the botanical art exhibitions I can find mentioned on the internet in the UK (see sidebar: 2015 Art Calendar) - if you are aware of any more then do let me know and I'll put the details up.


I'm now on Facebook here posting about botanical art and on Twitter as @botanicalmartin chatting about plants.

Do say hello.....
