Plants and Pollinators exhibition

The Plants and pollinators exhibition in Blossoms gallery, Aberystwyth is on now for 4 weeks. There are some really fascinating sculptures of enlarged pollen grains and deconstructed flowers which all makes for a different and interesting show.
 Here are a few photos from the exhibition.

Deconstructed bluebell and Dandelion

These amazing insects and sculptures are painted and made by Tereska Shepherd, the gallery owner.

The fascinating pollen grain sculptures

My moth painting is on an easel in the window.

Here are 2 more of my paintings, the foxgloves and bee and the bee orchid.

Upstairs in the Eco gallery is the exhibition 'Made with Love and Rubbish' with amazing work by Sue Clow and Ruby Roberts. All pieces are hand crafted from recycled rubbish, very thought provoking and colourful too.
If you'd like to check out Blossoms gallery, here's their website.


  1. Lovely to see a post and a very interesting looking exhibition . Your moths look stunning and worthy of a gallery. I hope you are feeling well and getting inspired as the sun shines and things start growing. Well hopefully the sun is out, it is here but still chilly. I am off for a wander to see the green leaves of the lords and ladies, always love it when they start to grow, promise of red berries !
    Hope the journal is coming along . X Milly
