Enticing exhibitions, guided sculpture walks and workshops are set to make this year’s Garden Art Month a major drawcard for the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney.
Both the beauty and complexity of nature as seen through the artist’s eye will be on display in many forms. The program will include exhibitions in The Calyx and Lion Gate Lodge including Fungi x Botanica Exhibition, Natures Best, In Progress 3 and one of the most intriguing elements of this year’s Garden Art Month will be Fragile Beauty Rich and Rare. Award-winning portrait, landscape and fine art photographer Pamela Pauline spent 18 months capturing images of endangered flora, before compositing and layering them to create the complex, contemporary, highly-detailed compositions that will be on display. There will also be Hello Koalas at the Australian Botanic Garden Mount Annan and Through the Smoke, Through our Eyes exhibition at the Blue Mountains Botanic Garden Mount Tomah.
Visitors can engage in the many tangible artistic representations of connection to plants and plant life.
