Lecture and Art Exhibit: Creative Ground: Designed and inspired by the Jordanian landscape

Back to News

We are excited to announce Hugo will be presenting to the Anglo Jordanian Society about his design for the Royal Bank of Canada Garden at the 2016 Chelsea Flower Show that was inspired by the Dibeen Forest in Jordan. Hugo will also be talking about his work on the Royal Botanic Garden of Jordan, which was the first of its kind in the country.

Heidi Venamore, the eminent landscape painter, will exhibit her botanical illustrations of Jordanian flora at the event. The illustrations were completed between 2012-2016 during Venamore’s tenure as Australian Ambassador to Jordan. Prints of Venamore’s artwork will be available for purchase at the event, and a portion of the proceeds will be donated to the AJS’s charitable fund.

Tickets for the event are available on the Anglo Jordanian Society website-
