Florilegium: Sydney’s Painted Garden exhibition. Sydney Living Museums celebrates 200 years of the Royal Botanic Garden.

This exhibition at the Museum of Sydney celebrates the renaissance in the long tradition of botanic art. It displays art pieces by members of the Florilegium Society, demonstrating the botanical and horticultural development of the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney and its links with domestic gardens and public landscapes for over 200 years from 1816 to 2016.

The Florilegium Society was formed in 2005 to create a unique collection of contemporary botanical paintings of some of the most significant plants in the living collections of the Royal Botanic Garden and Domain Trust. The artists have gifted the paintings to the Trust.

Visit the exhibition on the first and third Sunday of the month for the opportunity to talk with a Florilegium Society artist, including Beverly Allen, Tanya Hoolihan, Angela Lober, Lesley Elkan and Annie Hughes. Click HERE for details of dates and times for the artists in the gallery.

Florilegium: Sydney’s Painted Garden is open 7 days from 30 July – 30 October 2016 at the Museum of Sydney in Bridge Street, Sydney. Admission is free with Museum of Sydney entry.
