The Art Gallery* has become a major portion of the annual Show and we welcome all types of orchid photography, orchid-related fine arts and fine crafts.


In recent years we have had artists working in many areas, including metalwork, jewellery, lace-making, paintings in watercolour, acrylics and oils, as well as photography and digital painting. Please visit these links to find more information on some of the artists.


If you have suggestions for other links to add, please contact the Webmaster.





Jill Alexander, artist in oils and acrylics.

I accept commissions, working from photos. "Flowers with Attitude" are one of my specialties.


Lilith Ohan (BFA, BSc) is a Sumi-e (Oriental Brush Painting) artist. Her aim is to capture the sense of wonder that comes with truly seeing something for the first time and to convey the connection with the subject matter felt at that moment.
Lilith's "Orchid Sumi-e 2" won "Best in Fine Art" at 2011 AOS show.


Artist-blacksmith sculptor Cairn Cunnane. Portfolio includes orchid sculptures in metal.


Artist Shelley Leach will paint on commission. If anyone has a specific orchid (or other subject) they would like painted, please contact the artist.  


Donna Wiegand won a first at the 2009 Orchid Show for her oil painting "Flaming Orchid". If you would like your orchids painted, contact Donna and supply her with a photograph.

* Please note: there will NOT be an Art Gallery in the 2019 Show.
