The Society presents a more contemporary title for the exhibition in 2016 but don't be confused: nature throws up an abundance of shapes, patterns and structures within the plant kingdom.  The variety of each of these elements is astounding and all are designed to suit a specific purpose: habitat, climate, survival or propagation.  We hope you will be inspired to look at plants in a new light as these three words portray important aspects of botanical art and nature’s diversity.

The next London exhibition of the Society will be held from the 15th to 23rd of April 2016. Works may be submitted digitally for pre-selection from the 14th of December 2015, and details on how to do this will appear at the same time. Work which is pre-selected by the Selection Committee will be called for physical selection on the receiving day which is the 22nd of February 2016.

(NB. Works which are pre-selected are not automatically selected for exhibition, but pre-selection allows artists to submit without framing and transport costs.)
