Where and when can you see the exhibition?

The Society of Botanical Artists Exhibition is being held at Central Hall, Westminster, London between Friday 24 April and Sunday 3 May 2009. It's open daily from 10am to 5pm including Sundays. Admission is free and all work is for sale. I'll be writing a review of the exhibition for this blog.
