I think it's the first time that a video has ever been made showing all the exhibits in the show - as well as the overall size of the show. It's made up of about 50 small videos of different parts of the show. Next year I'm going to have to try for mini-interviews as well!
|Overview of the exhibition|
In my opinion, this is the top botanical art show in the world because of
- the challenge it presents to exhibitors
- the sheer quantity and quality of botanical artwork on display
- the status of the botanical artists who exhibit - it's revered by leading botanical artists who know the value of an RHS Gold Medal.
- 26 artists from 8 different countries around the world each exhibited a minimum of six botanical artworks; and
- nine RHS Gold Medal-winning exhibits on display
- some of the best technical use of watercolours for painting that you're ever likely to see
- masses of visitors, many of whom were buying the art on display.

If you want to know more about what's involved in exhibiting at this show you can
- review a couple of pages on my website
- Exhibitions: RHS Botanical Art Exhibitions
- Education: TIPS from RHS Gold Medal Winners - plus also see the main Tips page
- Plus take a look at this video from 2014 (below) when I interviewed Denise Ramsay about her Gold Medal and her approach to developing her exhibit. He six paintings were all bought by Dr Shirley Sherwood - and exhibited at the Shirley Sherwood Gallery of Botanical Art in Kew Gardens.
More about the showI'm already looking forward to next year when the show will be in the summer.
