Kelmscott Show – Art and Flower Exhibition

Western Australia is unique in the world with a vast array of wildflowers only found here in Western Australia. To encourage students to appreciate this diversity, the Armadale branch of the Wildflower Society of Western Australia are sponsoring prizes at the 2017 Kelmscott show in the student section of painting and drawing, and in the open sections for painting and drawing and flora arrangements.

The theme for all sections is Western Australian wildflowers.

We invite all to enter , last year we had some strong competition. Our ambition this year is to dominate the Art and Flower Pavilions with native flora!!

The Kelmscott show is on Friday October 20th and Saturday 21st.

Below are the details of each section we are sponsoring.
