Whitehouse Gallery, Kirkcudbright: The Scottish Society of Botanical Artists – Nature’s Designs

Ann Fraser, Just Fritillaries

12th October – 2nd November

The Scottish Society of Botanical Artists pairs up with Kirkcudbright’s Whitehouse Gallery to bring Nature’s Designs to Dumfries and Galloway. The village of Kirkcudbright, with its unique and long-established art heritage, is a fitting setting for the SSBA’s fourth annual exhibition, featuring around 70 works from more than 25 artists, including new paintings from award-winning leading botanical painters alongside fresh work from first-time exhibitors, with both traditional and experimental approaches.

Formed as a charity five years ago to encourage and promote botanical painting, the Society comprises a membership from throughout Scotland, and a growing number from England and abroad. Many of its members had work in Flora Scotia, Scotland’s contribution to the recent World Day of Botanical Art, when almost thirty countries collaborated in what was the largest exhibition ever of botanical painting.

The Whitehouse Gallery was established in 2004 – a leading art gallery with a nationwide reputation for quality, providing the perfect venue for the exhibition.
