Irish Artists Painting Irish Plants

The Irish Society of Botanical Artists will present their inaugural exhibition at the National Botanic Gardens, Glasnevin in May 2014.  The exhibition entitled The Irish Alphabet in Botanical Art marries native plant species with the capital letters of their names in Irish. You can find out more here.

There are over 60 artists producing paintings for the show and these will be exhibited as a series of complete eighteen-letter Irish alphabets. Artists from the thirty-two counties of Ireland will be taking part, along with Irish artists living in Britain, France and Austria, Newfoundland and the American state of Oregon.
