Artwork inspired by Fungi in all forms.
is a brand new exhibition in the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney, brought to you by Foundation and Friends of the Botanic Gardens
. Lion Gate Lodge will host an array of artworks, including paintings, drawings, printmaking, photography and sculptures, inspired by fungi in all their glory.
Fungi both enchants us and repels us; poisons us and gives us food and nutrients.
They can be storybook perfect or hideously grotesque, but for all their contradictions, one thing is certain: fungi have had an important role to play throughout human history. In fact, all life on earth can be categorized into just five major kingdoms of which fungi is one. For this exhibition, we are shining a spotlight on the incredible diversity of fungi.
All items in the exhibition are for sale with proceeds going to the artists and to assisting Foundation and Friends of the Botanic Gardens to continue supporting horticulture, conservation, scientific research and educations programs within your Botanic Gardens.
