About this Exhibition

The Irish Society of Botanical Artists is advancing preparations for their contribution to Botanical Art Worldwide, working on the plants that occur in Ireland. Artists are selecting plants they’d like to represent in the exhibition, and Zoe Devlin, author of Wildflowers of Ireland will serve as mentor for the project.

Primula vulgaris is one of the first springtime flowers, and can be found through most of Ireland, including in the famous Irish Burren, a favorite location for wildflower denizens. They prefer damp soils and shady habitats.
