Irish Society of Botanical Art

a Call to Arts
On 1st March 2014 at 11:00 am,
a Foundation Meeting for the Irish Society of Botanical Artists will be held in the Visitor Centre of the National Botanic Gardens, Glasnevin, Dublin.

Anyone with an interest in becoming a member of this new Society, either as an artist or a friend, is invited to attend the Foundation Meeting. The Society aims to facilitate interaction among those interested in botanical art in
Ireland, to foster and inspire their creative development, and raise the awareness of botanical art.

Botanical art is the merging of science and art in the depiction of plant life, and is enjoying a resurgence in recent years. There is a growing number of practicing artists and aspirational beginners in Ireland, and the proposed new society has
arisen from this trend.

In anticipation of its official foundation, the group has laid the groundwork for its inaugural exhibition, “The Irish Alphabet in Botanical Art”.

The exhibition will first open for public viewing on 2 May 2014 at the National Botanic Gardens
