Wild Thing Opening Celebration

Mingle with the artists, sip on a glass of Tyrrell’s Wines, enjoy delicious canapés, and enjoy shopping for exquisite pieces before the general public at the much-anticipated preview of the debut exhibition Wild Thing

Guest speaker Nick Boyle, Director of Welfare, Conservation and Science at Taronga Conservation Society Australia, will address guests before announcing the exhibition officially open.

The Wild Thing exhibition will celebrate the birds, mammals, frogs, insects, and more that live within the Royal Botanic Garden  Sydney, the Australian Botanic Garden Mount Annan, and the Blue Mountains Botanic Garden Mount Tomah. Our Gardens provide much needed green space in an ever-growing urban environment, and artists in the exhibition are invited to celebrate this relationship in a wide range of mediums including paintings, photography, ceramics and more. 

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