    Twelve distinguished artists concerned with all aspects of the natural world are mounting a major show at Exbury Gardens during early spring with traditional and contemporary work in a range of media and styles.

    The Four Seasons Art group, headed by painter and writer Marianna Kneller, a Founder member of the Society of Botanical Artists (SBA), will show paintings, drawings, prints and cards in Exbury’s Five Arrows Gallery from early April. The exhibition will be open daily between 10am - 5.30pm until Sunday, Sun 7th June.

The RHS have awarded her their complete range of medals for Botanic Art. rhododendron species leaf studies.

    Her latest book “The Majical World of John Clare”, the People’s Poet of the 18th century, is her personal selection of his poetry and writings exquisitely illustrated in watercolour. Marianna will be at the gallery on certain days to sign copies of her book for visitors. Please check the Exbury website for details.

    "I’m delighted to say the Four Seasons group have brought together another exhibition that is both exciting and wide-ranging,” she said. Many of the artists will be giving demonstrations throughout the day.
