The amazing world of trees - Exhibition

Westonbirt’s very own Director, Andrew Smith, will be opening this stunning exhibition.

Not only do these fascinating artworks call attention to the importance of trees and woodlands, but the fact that trees are central to diverse wildlife ecosystems, and vital for our own well-being.

For the past two years members of The Bath Society of Botanical Artists have been studying and painting trees, highlighting the beauty and intricacy of nature. With over 70 distinct paintings on show, the exhibition will emphasise the incredible diversity found in the world of trees. Formed in 2002, the society’s members are based across the Bath area. Several have won National and International awards for their work.

Where: BRLSI, 18 Queen Square, Bath BA1 2HN

When: Thursday 5 – Monday 23 October Time: 10am –4pm (closed Sundays)

Talk: Friday 13 October 7:30pm at BRLSI – Alan Power from Stourhead: ‘My Life With Trees and Theirs With Me.’
