An exhibition of Dr Shirley Sherwood's collection of botanical art by British artists. ART AND EXHIBITIONS

Dr Shirley Sherwood has been collecting British botanical art since 1990 when a dramatic watercolour of Laelia tenebrosa by Pandora Sellars caught her eye. Impressed by the quality of Pandora's work, Dr Sherwood went on to commission many British artists to paint studies of favourite plants such as fritillaries, cowslips and lapageria. Her vast collection of botanical art contains 330 works by 86 British botanical painters, of which a proportion is showcased in this exhibition. Botanical artists such as Brigid Edwards, Coral Guest, Rory McEwen, Rosie Sanders, Pandora Sellars and Graham Rust have been carefully chosen to showcase British talent.
