Australia’s leading contemporary botanical art exhibition Botanica returns to the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney in May, exploring the complex and remarkable relationship we have with plants. The annual showcase, now in its 18th year, features work by some of the best Australian and international established and emerging botanic and natural history artists and is considered one of the foremost exhibitions of its kind.
2017’s Botanica theme draws its inspiration from the multiple ways we need, love and should appreciate plants – medicines, oxygen, poisons, fragrances, in celebrations and so much more.
Botanica is a beautiful exhibition and encourages the sale of all its artworks. Proceeds go to the artists and to help Foundation and Friends of the Botanic Gardens continue to support horticulture, conservation, scientific research and education programs within your Botanic Gardens.
Save the date: Botanica Opening Night, Friday 5 May, 6pm – 8pm, Lion Gate Lodge.
