This open exhibition showcases contemporary British botanical illustrations in a variety of styles.

Botanical illustration is the art of depicting the form, colour and details of a plant species. Although scientifically accurate, studies are often artistic and aesthetically pleasing. The tradition of marrying art with science goes back to the 6th century when the first botanical illustrations were created. The heyday of botanical art was from the 17th to the 19th century. In recent years, there has been a renaissance in this genre.
