An exhibition unearthing the intriguing world of Art x Science in the Gardens.
Presented by Foundation and Friends of the Botanic Gardens, a not-for-profit organisation that is devoted to supporting, protecting and enhancing the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney, the Domain, the Australian Botanic Garden Mount Annan and the Blue Mountains Botanic Garden Mount Tomah.
The world of Fungi and mycelium is full of scientific wonder and this exhibition presents it merged with contemporary botanical art. The Foundation and Friends of the Botanic Gardens are proud to present two stunning exhibitions together, Fungi x Botanica.
Botanica is a well-known exhibition hosted by the Foundation & Friends. In 2019 it celebrated a 20th anniversary. Over this time it has set a high benchmark in the botanical world with many of the artists having enviable worldwide reputations. While some of the Botanical artists will be submitting works on fungi, mushrooms and lichens, other will focus on plants and flowers.
Fungi are the building blocks of our eco system, evoking wonder, awe and a curiosity in nature. They will be the subject for watercolour and acrylic artists, ceramicists, sculptors, photographers and many other disciplines.
This years’ exhibition features the work of over 50 artists for a breathtaking combination of ‘off the wall’ fungi art and scientific paintings to be presented at Lion Gate Lodge. Find out more
