13 July – 7 October 2018
Visit Watts Gallery – Artists’ Village, Surrey, for their latest contemporary show – Florabundance.
Discover affordable art in an exhibition that brings together paintings, drawings & prints by 12 contemporary British artists… including me… to create a veritable bouquet of flower pictures.
From exquisitely accurate botanical watercolours to exuberant riots of colour in acrylic paintings, Florabundance celebrates the best of modern floral art and recalls the inspiration found by Watts Gallery’s founders – the great Victorian artist G F Watts OM RA (1817 – 1904) and his wife, the artist and designer Mary Watts (1849 – 1938) – in the natural beauty of the Surrey Hills.
All works for sale. Watts Contemporary Gallery. Free admission. Open daily 10.30am – 5pm.
