A show by Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh & Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh

This show celebrates these two institutions shared history including information about their beginnings 350 years ago. The exhibition combines contemporary botanical art from ESBA artists* alongside some of the oldest florilegia including Hortus Medicus Edinburgensis, the first botanical book published in Scotland, and others with Scottish or Edinburgh connections as well as some lovely examples relating to Maria Merian and Carl Linnaeus.

My piece ‘Bi-seasonal Arisaema consanguineum’ shows two seasons growth, the fruit and the inflorescence & foliage. The plant specimen was graciously supplied from the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh living collection.

*Marianne Hazlewood, Jacqui Pestell Karyn Dalrymple Mhorag McDowall, Sarah Roberts, Sharon Tingey, Jessica Langford & Lyn Campbell
