reFraming Nature Exhibition
BY Friends of the Royal Botanic Gardens Melbourne | 04-Sep-2017
The Friends of the Royal Botanic Gardens in Melbourne presents its biennial natural history art exhibition – reFraming Nature 2017 with over 130 artists entering works.
Following the success of reFraming Nature 2015, the Friends of the Royal Botanic Gardens (FRBG) in Melbourne is again running its biennial natural history art exhibition – reFraming Nature 2017. In 2015, we had over 130 artists entering works, and expect to exceed this number in 2017.
reFraming Nature 2017 will display artworks depicting ferns, fungi, lichen, insects, butterflies, marine life, pond life, shells, birds, fossils, amphibians as well as botanical subjects. All the paintings and drawings exhibited aim to be as scientifically accurate as possible while expressing, at the same time, artistic vision and creative individuality. All framed works are for sale as well as artists cards, unframed originals and prints. Along with two gallery rooms of larger works, we will once again have our “room of miniatures’ containing small artworks A5 or smaller in size. These smaller images are usually cheaper than the larger artworks and hence provide a great opportunity for the public to purchase original artwork that won’t break the bank. We will also have two other rooms full of larger artwork – there should be something for anyone and everyone.
