england_london_chelsea-physicIn celebration of the 20th anniversary of Chelsea Physic Garden’s Florilegium Society, an exhibition of paintings and drawings will be held at the garden in London, England, this August.

Open from August 4 through 26, 2015, “London’s Secret Garden” will feature works from contemporary botanical artists. Many of the works of art in the exhibition will be included in the Society’s new book entitled Botanical Illustration from Chelsea Physic Garden.

The Florilegium Society was formed in 1995 to record in paintings and drawings the huge collection of plants growing in the Chelsea Physic Garden. Each year selected works are donated to the Garden’s ever expanding archive.

The Chelsea Physic Garden, 66 Royal Hospital Road, London, England, was founded in 1673 by the Worshipful Society of Apothecaries for its apprentices to study the medicinal qualities of plants.
