In a wonderful summer fusion, botanical photography and world-renowned art will come together at the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Show at the Saatchi Gallery in London, England. Open from June 14 to July 7, the exhibit will feature a range of subjects from medicinal desert flowers to ornamental bananas, forest slime molds to urban street plants. Featuring the work of 18 leading global botanical photographers and 23 artists, participants represent a range of countries including, but not limited to, the United States, United Kingdom, Italy, Portugal , the Republic of Korea, Japan, Romania, Singapore, South Africa and Taiwan.

An exceptional showcase for botanical photography

This year's exhibition will cover a diverse range of topics, themes and issues, including the impact of climate change and extreme weather on native species such as Sarracenia oreophila var ornata in the USA, Banksia serrata in Australia, andAster danyangensis endangered from Korea. Charlotte Brooks, curator of art at the RHS, points out that we are seeing a demonstration not only of incredible technical skill in capturing their chosen subjects by artists and photographers, but also of an increased emphasis on the transcription of the history of these plants.

A commitment to biodiversity and education

Entries are carefully reviewed by a panel of expert judges before being selected for exhibition, assessed on their aesthetic appeal, scientific accuracy and technical skill. Once qualified, artists compete for an RHS medal – gold, silver-gilt, and bronze, as well as a “best in show” award for the best botanical artwork. For the first time, the public will also have the opportunity to vote for their favorite work of art or photograph through the People's Choice Award.

Pratical information

Entrance to the exhibition costs £7 for adults, £5 for concessions, £17 for families or is free for RHS and Saatchi Gallery members.
