Eden Project Florilegium Society member and Publicity Secretary, Laura Silburn, achieved a Gold medal at the RHS London Orchid and Botanical Art Show in April with her submission of six paintings of Hardy Geraniums.
It is with great sadness that we have to tell you this news. We have lost our incredible founder and teacher Mally Francis. We would like to thank the Association of British Botanical Artists for this wonderful post they have made about her.
Catherine Day and Ros Franklin (Chairman of the Eden Project Florilegium) were awarded an RHS Silver Medal as part of their group’s themed exhibition entitled ‘Spots and Stripes’.
The workshop Painting Fritillary on Vellum 13th and 14th April 2019 was dedicated to with our love to Mally Francis’ memory.
This spring visit the Eden Project to see an exhibition of contemporary artworks alongside botanical paintings from Eden’s Florilegium Society called Radical Botany. Not to be missed!
Ros Franklin was awarded an RHS Gold Medal (May 2015) for her first solo exhibition “Arisaemas for the Sheltered Garden or Greenhouse”. The RHS Lindley Library has purchased one of the paintings Arisaema speciosum var. mirabile for their collection.
