Visit to Oxford – members of the society are to visit Oxford Botanical Gardens on Thursday 6th July, all are welcome to come. We have also been encouraged to visit Weston Library where there are two displays involving botanical art. Those travelling by train to get the 10.04am from Birmingham New Street, it stops at Birmingham International and Coventry for those wanting to join at another station and we return at 18.39. Get your own tickets or use your own transport to Oxford and meet at the gardens.

Sigrid Muller – Work by Sigrid Muller was on show recently at Fosse Gallery in Stow-on -the-Wold. I found this approach to botanical art interesting, pencil crayon on backgrounds of pooled watercolour. The work can be viewed on the web site or galleries exhibiting the paintings.
