Botanica Art Exhibition - Opening Night

You're invited to the official opening of Australia’s leading contemporary botanical art exhibition Botanica: Symbiosis, with keynote speaker Dr Marco Duretto, Manager Plant Diversity at the National Herbarium of New South Wales.

Be among the first to explore this exquisite botanical art exhibition. In 2018 Botanica will delve into complex and remarkable symbiotic relationship some plants have with other plants and animals. See this theme artistically represented in over 150 original artworks from some of the very best botanic and natural history artists. Beautiful artworks from students studying a Bachelor of Natural History Illustration at the University of Newcastle have also been selected this year.

Botanica is truly a fabulous art exhibition that is loved by so many. You won't want to miss out on opening night tickets, buy yours today! 

Note: We encourage the sale of all the artwork, as proceeds go to the talented artists and to Foundation and Friends of the Botanic Gardens, a not-for-profit organisation that supports horticulture, conservation, scientific research and education programs within the Botanic Gardens.
