The exhibition is part of the celebrations of the Australian National Botanic Gardens 50th anniversary and the Friends 30th anniversary.
The exhibition subject will be Banksias as well as plants Banks and Solander collected on their voyage with Captain Cook on the Endeavour.
Artistic Endeavour: Contemporary botanical artists’ response to the legacy of Banks, Solander and Parkinson marks the 250th anniversary of the HMB Endeavour’s voyage along the east coast of Australia. Scientists Joseph Banks and Daniel Solander, together with illustrator Sydney Parkinson, gathered and recorded many “curious plants (they) met with on shore”.
Showcasing new works by members of the Botanical Artists’ Society of Queensland, the exhibition is an innovative exploration of the artistic, scientific, environmental and cultural significance of this chapter in Queensland’s botanical heritage.
