In May 2018 the Botanical Art Society of Australia, (BASA) as part of a world-wide exhibition of botanical art, will hold a juried exhibition in Canberra of flora native to Australia.
The committee has been busy with the selection of art works for the exhibition.
The forty works for the PowerPoint presentation have now been chosen. These will be viewed around the world, and represent a great cross section of our diverse Flora and of our excellent artists.
One hundred and ten paintings (including the 40 mentioned), have been selected to hang in the exhibition in Canberra from 18 May to 27 May. We are very proud of all the works and hope to see many of you there.
Look for information soon about workshops and other activities that will happen in Canberra in conjunction with the exhibition.
The exhibition will be open to the public and will be synchronized with similar exhibitions in 16 other countries. During the exhibition a digital slide show will showcase up to 40 works from each of the participating countries. Australia will provide a slide show of up to 40 of our best artworks to be screened in each of the participating countries
A Worldwide Day of Botanical Art will be held on 18 May 2018 with events occurring for 24 hours following the sun from country to country.
The exhibition is to feature plant species of Australia, the definition of which is ‘any wild plant indigenous to Australia, including natural hybrids, but excluding any cultivar, man-made hybrids, and naturalized exotics’.
