Plantae: SBA Call for entries 2019.

Do you focus on botanical art, is this one of the areas you enjoy studying? If so this could be for you.

The Society of Botanical Artists are inviting everyone to apply, from all over the world. Submitting work for consideration is easy online, just follow the link and send them your best work.



There's a plethora of plants in the natural world to choose from as inspiration. Be botanically accurate if you can, aim please the specialists with a keen eye, but also a piece that would stand proud in an exhibition. Any medium except photography can be included, such as illustrations, printmaking, jewellery and sculpture. 

Would you like the opportunity to exhibit with the Society of Botanical Artists at the Mall Galleries in London this summer?

Then go for it! The deadline is fast approching, at the end of this month, but you still have time.
