    Mon to Frid 10am – 5.30pm, Sat 10.30am – 5pmFrames Gallery, 10 Victoria Street, Perth, Scotland, PH2 8LW

    We are expecting to have another wonderful exhibition of the work our members have done during lockdown.

    This year the exhibition is at the Frames Gallery in Perth and will run from 19th September to 10th October.

    As usual paintings, prints and cards will be for sale and the exhibition will be well worth a visit if you can make it. The Gallery will have all the social distancing requirements in place to make it as safe as possible to come. However, if you cannot manage to get to the Gallery, there will also be the opportunity to see most of the paintings on the Frames Gallery website www.framesgallery.co.uk and to purchase paintings from there.

    Frames Gallery operates the Own Art scheme allowing buyers to spread the cost of a purchase over 10 payments.

    Given the current situation we are not able to hold a private view as in the old days but some of the artists will be in the gallery from 11am on the 19th September.

    To avoid any possible overcrowding you can book a slot from 11am onwards. Book via Eventbrite where you can select the slot which suits you best.

    Alternatively you will be able to visit the exhibition online.

 

Please feel free to share the schedule with other interested botanical artists or friends – there is a friends membership available for those who are interested in the society.
