It is with great joy that I can announce that Amicus Botanicus are holding an exciting exhibition of new work this May. The exhibition is entitled "The Art of Cultivating Hope" and it will be held at 54 The Gallery, Shepherds Market, Mayfair London W1J 7QX between Monday 12th to Sunday 18th May 2014.

In this centenary year of the First World War the artists have kindly chosen to support Gardening Leave, a charity which tends to the invisible wounds of conflict by providing horticultural therapy for troubled Armed Forces veterans with mental health issues.
The artists have produced a collection of paintings of plants suggested by Gardening Leave, some of which held a special meaning for those fighting in the First world War, and others which are of special significance to Gardening Leave in their work.
As well as this special collection each artist will be exhibiting the latest of their own paintings, prints, and cards. Do come along and have a look at their gorgeous work. I went to their show a couple of years ago and I was not disappointed. It's a lovely little space which is conveniently located. It's a good stop for anyone in London and for those who are visiting the city to see the SBA show in Westminster as the dates conveniently coincide.
