Be part of our online summer 2021 exhibition and ‘art book’.


All selected FLORAL works will be included in an online slide show and publication.


The symbolic properties of flowers have long been a source of artistic, poetic, and mythical inspiration. From antiquity to the present, blossoms have been called upon to signify and celebrate key moments in life: bouquets appear in delivery rooms, at baptisms, weddings, and funerals, as markers to commemorate and celebrate both the beauty and the fragility of life.


About the exhibition

For this CALL FOR ENTRY, the Aird is enlisting contemporary artists’ blooming compositions. All pieces, be they created using water-colour or oil paint, mixed media, collage, photography, sculpture, and/or new media that reflect on the garden subject and how it appears in nature and/or culture will be considered.
