Botanical art show
Timothy Langston Fine Art & Antiques of London’s Ebury Street is launching Floreat!, an exhibition of Contemporary botanical art to coincide with Belgravia in Bloom (May 23-29) and The Chelsea Flower Show (May 24-28).
According to the gallery: “In these times of relentless adversity, botanical art, an aesthetic continuous and unbroken since the 16th century, is experiencing a strong revival.”
The exhibition, which runs until May 29, features 48 works by female UK illustrators. Among them are Helen Bales, Julia Trickey, Fiona Kane and Jarnie Godwin.
Prices range from £500-5000.
BADA Friends event
The next BADA Friends event takes place this week at the Arts & Crafts Christ Church in Southgate, north London.
The church was designed by Sir George William Scott with Pre-Raphaelite stained glass windows supplied by the Morris firm incorporating designs by Burne-Jones, Rossetti and Morris.
Tickets are still available for the event on Wednesday, May 25, at 2.30pm via email@example.com
Next month (June 13) BADA Friends visits Aldby Park in Yorkshire. This early Georgian house is set above the river Derwent with a former deer park and landscaped gardens which reveal the site’s earlier history. Aldby Park is home to a portrait of the famed Darley Arabian, one of three Georgian stallions responsible for siring modern British thoroughbred racing stock.
