Museums & Galleries Queensland is seeking expressions of interest for a new touring exhibition, Artistic Endeavour: Contemporary botanical artists’ response to the legacy of Banks, Solander and Parkinson (working title), by artists from the Botanical Artists’ Society of Queensland.
Curated by Beth Jackson in collaboration with artist and botanist Dr Nita C Lester, this exhibition reflects on the significance of botanical specimens collected from our region 250 years ago, and the emergence of botanical art. It showcases sixty-five exquisite works by thirty-three members of the Botanical Artists’ Society of Queensland (BASQ).
From August 2020 onwards.
