CALL FOR ENTRIES. Attention schools and colleges with budding botanical artists: please see my blog post about the Shirley Sherwood Young Botanical Artist competition at Kew Gardens 2023:
I do not quite fit the age category (being 47 years over the limit) for this incredible opportunity for young artists who like painting plants: read and enjoy and of course enter if you are between the ages of 18 and 25 years.
Kew Gardens is running a Young Botanical Artist Competition this year, to encourage the younger generation to engage in botanical art. The theme is ‘Trees’ and the deadline for entries is the 30th of April 2023. There will be an exhibition showcasing the winning entries in September this year at the Shirley Sherwood Gallery in Kew.
Some wonderful entries have been received so far – but KEW would love your help in securing more!
If you know of any young artists, schools or student groups, it would be fantastic if you could forward them a link to our competition page:
