The Friends of the Royal Botanic Gardens Melbourne have pleasure in presenting their thirteenth biennial The Art of Botanical Illustration exhibition from 15 to 30 October at Domain House.

This year, in addition to conventional botanical illustration, we are encouraging artists to go outside the traditional botanical illustration terms of reference and produce some innovative works of art.

This is Australia’s premier selected exhibition of botanical works – with approximately 150 paintings being selected this year from 300 entries from local, interstate and overseas artists.
The scientific accuracy of the work submitted for selection is a critical part of the high standard expected for inclusion in the exhibition.

The exhibition’s growing international profile, amongst the worldwide resurgence of interest in botanical art, has become a focus for both artists and collectors.
