Foundation and Friends of the Botanic Gardens Exhibition

The Foundation and Friends of the Botanic Gardens in Sydney are having an exhibition next month, October 17 – 25 2020. It will be held at the picturesque Lion Gate Lodge in the Botanic Gardens and promises to be beautiful.

We have three artworks in the exhibition,” Vanishing”, which is an exploration of insect diversity and threatened extinction. This work was also a finalist in the 2020 Adelaide Perry Drawing Prize which was cut short due to the corona virus pandemic.

Next is “Fly by Night”, a watercolour painting which features the beauty and diversity of Australian moths. All the moths were drawn from specimens obtained in Northern Queensland.

Finally there is “The Known World” a whimsical look at Australian fauna and flora.

All works will be available through the website as prints.
