The Art of Botanical Illustration 2018

Sat 13th October, 2018 – Sun 28th October, 2018
Domain House Gallery
Dallas Brooks Drive, Melbourne
Price: Entry by gold coin donation.
An exhibition highlighting the life cycles of nature.

For two weeks the Royal Botanic Gardens will be hosting an exhibition to highlight the complexity of our local flora. The gallery will feature approximately 170 original pieces from both local and international artists.

Artists have made the works scientifically accurate, which forced them to use the tiniest of brushes and sharpest of pencils to mimic the intricate details of their subjects.

Plants will be depicted at all stages of their development, from sprouting seed pods and fully bloomed flowers, to wilted remains. The exhibition aims to highlight different forms a plant takes over its lifespan.

All exhibited art is available to buy, and the money raised will support the Royal Botanic Gardens.

From 10am to 4pm.
