The Geelong School of Botanical Art, Inspired by Nature 8 Exhibition, will delight visitors to a spectacular blossoming of creativity, that embraces established and new talent. This is evident by the beautifully portrayed subjects, the narratives depicted within the artworks, the consideration of composition, the diversity of media and attention to detail is on display.

The Geelong Botanic Gardens has a diversity of plants, of which, many are rare and heritage listed. The Geelong School of Botanical Art resides within the gardens which enables the artists to visually capture and importantly, document plants of the gardens, attested by many of the artworks on display at the exhibition. In the future, the botanical artists’ role in the documentation of rare and critically endangered species of plants will become even more crucial in light of the warnings of our fast-changing climate.

Amanda Ahmed, Amanda Blake Sutterby, Craig Lidgerwood and John Pastoriza-Piñol are the schools’ current tutors; all are nationally and internationally renowned and their artwork and can be found in art collections and florilegiums in Australia and worldwide. Through their generous imparting of expertise and knowledge of ‘all things botanical art’, the school has become one of excellence in its field and the students’ exceptional artworks at the exhibition is testament to this.
