The Friends of the Royal Botanic Gardens (FRBG) are thrilled to announce the return of the reFraming Nature exhibition, a biennial celebration of natural history through illustration.
The exhibition will showcase a varied and visually stunning selection of works depicting birds, bugs, fungi, amphibians and more, submitted from students and members of the FRBG.
Natural history illustration celebrates subjects from science and nature with scientific accuracy and artistic technique at its core. This exhibition offers the chance to reflect on the processes and practice of natural history illustration as well as the environment around us which it depicts.
reFraming Nature is a great opportunity for art lovers and collectors to acquire beautiful original art at modest prices and for everyone to experience an art form that is accessible, highly individual, and astonishingly beautiful. Profits from the exhibition go towards supporting local artists, the FRBG and their support of the Gardens and Herbarium.
When: 21 September to 6 October 2019 - 10 am - 4 pm
Where: Domain House Gallery, Dallas Brooks Drive, Melbourne (located behind the Shrine of Remembrance)
Cost: Free but a gold coin donation helps our fundraising efforts
