Flora: The Art and Science of the Plant is the Annual Exhibition by the Botanical Society of Australia (BASA) at the Royal Botanic Garden in Sydney. It includes both botanical art and illustration in a variety of mediums. All works are for sale.
The exhibition opened at the end of August and continues until the 12th September. (Further details at the end)
BASA yesterday added 30 new photos of the exhibition to their album Flora 2017 photos on their Facebook Page https://www.facebook.com/BotanicalArtSocietyAustralia/. The exhibition includes some very striking pieces - and you can see images of individual works which won Best Painting in Show and Highly Commended awards.
It would be even better if somebody could scan the list of titles and names of the artists and also add that in! :)
If you'd like to take a look at the work being produced by Australian artists I suggest you take a look.
How to see the exhibition
Where: the Palm House, Royal Botanic Garden, Mrs Macquaries Rd, Sydney NSW 2000
When: 30 August – 12 September 2017
Hours: Open from 10 am - 4 pm
If you scroll down the BASA Facebook page there is an earlier posted album (Aug 28th) which has 43 up close images of the art work in the Flora 2017 show and each is labeled with the artist name and flower. It is not visible in the 'full screen' view but if you click on an image to open the 'slideshow' it is on the right.
