We are excited to announce that the exhibition will open from Saturday 25 July - Sunday 2 August at Lion Gate Lodge in the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney.
Plants give us life.
They make our air, our food, our clothes and our homes. Without them life would cease to exist. The Royal Botanic Garden is a living collection of thousands of plants in Sydney's CBD. This oasis is the city's lungs, the green heart of Sydney and Australia's oldest scientific institution.
is a brand new exhibition in the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney, brought to you by Foundation and Friends of the Botanic Gardens. For this exhibition, we are shining a spotlight on the incredible diversity of plants living here and around the world. And we're also telling the story of their friends: the many pollinators that disperse seeds and keep the Gardens humming.
Lion Gate Lodge will host an array of artworks, including paintings, drawings, printmaking, photography and sculptures, inspired by plants in all their glory.
All items in the exhibition are for sale with proceeds going to the artists who keep our culture rich and vibrant and to assisting Foundation and Friends of the Botanic Gardens
