Exhibition The World of Plants 8-17 April 2011
copyright Katherine Tyrrell
The World of Plants is being held at Westminster Central Hall between 8th April and 17th April 2011.
The title of the exhibition for 2011 is The World of Plants and visitors can observe how the various artists have used their talents to portray not only the many beautiful floral specimens but vegetables too. All work is for sale including prints and cards.Two of the accepted works can be seen on the right. Guess who forgot to take a scan of the completed third work - Rosette! (Now you know the reason why I wrote The Exhibition Checklist! Thanks again to Paula for the suggesting the title! - see In need of a title - again!)
Only the scent will be missing!
Submitting work for this exhibition each year has allowed me to take a journey in terms of what I like to portray. Increasingly, I'm finding I'm absolutely fascinated by the abstracted patterns to be found in macro views of different plants - hence the titles for the two works on the right - Triangulation and Tesselation.
If anybody else who reads this blog has also got their work into "The World of Plants" I'm happy to update this post to do a 'shout-out' to you if you've already put up a blog post about your entry.
Also if any of you are botanical artists and have had work accepted but won't be able to get to the exhibition, do please let me know. I'm allowed to take photographs for the review of the exhibition which I do each year and hence can take a photograph of your work in situ in the exhibition - and send it to you. I've done it before and am happy to do it again.
For those who have never visited the exhibition before, Central Hall is right opposite the West Door of Westminster Abbey - that's the one which Prince William and Catherine Middleton will use to enter and exit the Abbey on their Wedding Day on 29th April! :) Here's a link to Google Maps for the location.

PS News of the success with my juried submission makes up somewhat for currently being unable to walk - due to yet another incident with my awful right foot. I've had to cancel today's planned visit to the "Watercolour" exhibition at Tate Britain. Here's hoping the trapped nerve or whatever it is causing the excruciating pain sorts itself out fast!
