Four Seasons Art Exhibition Sat 6th April - Thurs 6th June
Art for all seasons at Exbury
Distinguished artists concerned with all aspects of the natural world are mounting a major show at Exbury Gardens during early spring.
The Four Seasons Art group, headed by painter and writer Marianna Kneller, Fellow of the Society of Botanical Artists, will show paintings, sculpture, drawings, prints and etchings in Exbury’s Five Arrows Gallery for nine weeks from early April. The exhibition will be open between 10am - 5.30pm.
Marianna, resident artist at Exbury Gardens from 1980-2004 and a founder member of the Society of Botanical Artists (SBA), is known for her unparalleled studies of the Rothschild Collection of Rhododendrons and is the author of a superbly illustrated book on rhododendrons, published by David and Charles in 1995. The RHS have awarded her the complete range of Grenfell Medals for Botanic Art, the Linley Medal and a prestigious Gold Medal for her rhododendron species leaf studies.
“Many of the artists who have exhibited at Exbury in the past are coming together with some new talent under the ‘Four Seasons’ mantle and I’m delighted to say we have a show that is exciting and wide-ranging,” she said. “There is traditional and contemporary work and a great range of media and styles”.
