We have had a fantastic response and over 60 pieces of art have been received so that means more than 60 artists from 16 countries submitted artwork.
As you are probably aware, this exhibition has a twist in that we are working with the Shirley Sherwood Gallery, the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew to display a juried selection of the submissions to ReflectionS on a large screen in Gallery 6 so if you are able to visit the gallery then please pop in.
ReflectionS will be associated with the upcoming major exhibition in the Kew gallery featuring Zadok Ben-David: Natural Reserve and the Shirley Sherwood Collection: Elegant and Enchanting - Botanical Art from Japan, China and Thailand.
One of the most exciting aspects of the artwork submitted to ReflectionS is the diversity of the plants illustrated together with their accompanying stories, so we are expecting the judges will have a hard time with their selections.
Judging will be based on those submissions that best meet the exhibition aim.
" To stimulate discussion about biodiversity and the impact of climate change using the medium of botanical art to tell a story through imagery which is visually appealing and immediately accessible to a wide audience. "
