Submitted artworks featuring one of 30 Inspirational Plants will be showcased on an online exhibition where they will be auctioned to raise funds for further Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust wild plant projects. The aim is to host a 2021 exhibition (COVID-19 rules permitting) showing 30 selected artworks at sites around Lincolnshire.
LoveLincsPlants project officer, Sue Fysh, said:
The exhibition is a celebration and reflection on the last three years of the LoveLincsPlants project. And what an amazing three years it’s been. The project has survived the ‘Beast from the East’ in 2018, some of the hottest summer temperatures on record and one of the wettest winters in 2019, and now in 2020 a global pandemic. Throughout it all we have managed to collect some hundreds of Lincolnshire plants for our herbarium project. Now, more than ever, is the time to lose ourselves in creating some wonderful artwork based on one of the 30 inspirational plants.”
Artwork is welcome in a range of media (except photographs) including drawing, painting, collage, illustration, calligraphy, textiles, embroidery or mixed media. Submissions must be A5 in size (210mm x 148mm or 8” x 6”), flat and either landscape or portrait and should be posted to the Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust to arrive no later than Tuesday 16 February 2021.
