Super Nature: A new contemporary art fair inspired by plants

Super Nature is London’s first contemporary art fair inspired by the joy of plants!

This boutique art fair will show a curated selection of artists whose work celebrates the joy of plants, flowers and gardens.

From oil paintings to photography, collages to print-making, all work for sale at this affordable fair will be priced at under £500, with an abundance of art to appeal to both garden and art lovers alike.

Held in the impressive setting of the Garden Museum, visitors to Super Nature will also have the chance to create art inspired by nature themselves, in flower-pressing and abstract floral painting workshops hosted by the exhibiting artists.

  • JamJar Edit

    JamJar Edit

    Alongside JamJar Flowers Founder Melissa Richardson, Amy Fielding heads up the JamJar studio as well as their recently established e-commerce site JamJar Edit. Melissa’s approach to floristry, which celebrates seasonal flowers in all their glory, along with Amy’s love of modernist design, led to the launch of the Edit, which specialises in flower pressing and beautifully designed botanically inspired gifts.

    Their flower pressing story began when invited by British fashion label Mulberry to make pressed flower invitations for their SS15 fashion show. Similar projects quickly followed, and a new found obsession with the craft of pressing flowers led to more ambitious installations for the likes of Rakes Progress Magazine and Sketch in Mayfair. An invitation from a private client to create a bespoke wall of pressed flowers with specimens picked from the land around his home was a dream commission, and one that has led JamJar to not only create similar works of art but to offer clients the opportunity to preserve a favourite plant, a bouquet or even an entire garden.

    JamJar now hold regular flower pressing workshops, and sell a collection of framed pressed flowers, and flower pressing accessories online via jamjaredit.co.uk.
