‘Botanica’ celebrates 20 years

‘Botanica’ celebrates a major milestone at the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney with a 20th-anniversary exhibition. Presented by the Foundation and Friends of the Botanic Gardens (FFBG) and curated by Robyn Macintosh the show presents 66 Australian and international established and emerging artists who have come together to explore the plant world and how we relate to this vibrant realm.

The show offers an extraordinary suite of contemporary botanical artworks within the idyllic garden location, as well as the opportunity to purchase original and limited edition prints. Proceeds will go to the artists and will also enable the FFBG to continue its support of horticulture, conservation, scientific research and educational programs. On show until 14 April from 10am to 4pm daily.
