RHS Botanicals to feature in new Saathi exhibition

World-renowned botanical art and photography will be brought together in one fabulous Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Show in partnership with Saatchi Gallery, London in 2024.

The RHS Botanical Art and Photography Show, taking place from 14 June to 7 July 2024, will exhibit exquisite botanical art and photography featuring a rich variety of subjects from medicinal desert flowers to ornamental bananas, and from images of forest slime moulds to urban street plants. It will showcase the new work of leading botanical artists and photographers representing the UK, Italy, Portugal, Romania, USA, South Africa, Taiwan, Republic of Korea, Singapore, and Japan. For the first time this year, the public will have the opportunity to vote in the People’s Choice award.

The Show contributes to a long legacy of botanical art collecting and display by the RHS, and complements the work of the RHS Lindley Collections, which holds more than 30,000 botanical paintings and heritage photographs.

All entries are reviewed by an expert judging panel during the pre-selection process, prior to the show opening in June, and are assessed on aesthetic appeal, scientific accuracy and technical skill. Once on display, the artists compete for an RHS medal – Gold, Silver-Gilt, and Bronze, as well as a ‘best in show’ award – Best Botanical Artwork, Best Botanical Art Exhibit, Best Portfolio Photography Exhibit, and Judges Special Award.

The RHS Botanical Art & Photography Show will be open to the public from 14 June – 7 July 2024 at Saatchi Gallery, London. The show is supported by Clive Christian Perfume. Entry to the exhibition is £7/adult, £5/concession* or £17/family* or free for RHS and Saatchi Gallery members.
