Exhibition dates: 1st – 30th November

Private view (Online only): Tuesday 2 November (6.00 pm GMT)

International non-profit arts organisation ArtCan is launching a new online exhibition, ‘VERDANT: Nature & Effect’, featuring uplifting florals and greenery throughout the month of November. 

Running from 1 – 30 November, the show will take place in ArtCan’s brand new virtual reality gallery. The exhibition will give viewers an immersive experience, as well as access to a specially curated selection of botanical artworks available to purchase from ArtCan artist members. 

The exhibition will launch with a private view via Zoom on Tuesday 2 November (6.00 pm GMT) and will include talks by a number of the participating artists.

Curators’ quotes:

Kate Enters, Founder and Director at ArtCan is co-curating the exhibition with Catherine Sweet, ArtCan artist and Founder of BobCat Gallery.

Kate: “This exhibition is designed to bring together an aesthetically beautiful collection of floral and botanical artworks, not only as an antithesis to such difficult circumstances worldwide over the last year and a half, but as a celebration of the flora which have given us so much strength during these times.”

Catherine: “The exhibition will enable viewers a moment’s pause to stop and take stock, with simple and clear visuals that demonstrate the ability for beautiful art to empower us and to cleanse our minds.”
