Easton Walled Gardens hosts its inaugural Botanical Art Exhibition
Saturday 17th February - Sunday 11th March 2018, on our usual open days
Easton Walled Gardens is excited to announce their first Botanical Art Exhibition, titled:
'A Year in the Garden'
Come and see three accomplished and talented artists interpret the seasons through botanical illustration and painting. The exhibitors are part of a distinguished group of botanical artists stretching back to the 16th century. These skills are still used today to record flora throughout the world. They use extraordinary observation skills to reproduce the beauty and detail of the natural world.
The exhibition will take place in the Coach House at Easton Walled Gardens and entry is included with your garden admission fee.

She has been involved in teaching all her life and enjoys sharing her enthusiasm and expertise with others.
Dawn Wright: As the resident tutor at Easton Walled Gardens, Dawn’s enthusiasm, knowledge and expertise of botanical drawing and painting really brings out the natural creativity within her students.
