    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.

    • Lion Gate Lodge Garden The Royal Botanic Garden Mrs Macquaries Road, Sydney

    Fungi is a brand new exhibition in the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney, brought to you by Foundation and Friends of the Botanic Gardens. Lion Gate Lodge will host an array of artworks, including paintings, drawings, printmaking, photography and sculptures, inspired by fungi in all their glory.


    Fungi both enchants us and repels us; poisons us and gives us food and nutrients. They can be storybook perfect or hideously grotesque, but for all their contradictions, one thing is certain: fungi have had an important role to play throughout human history. In fact, all life on earth can be categorized into just five major kingdoms of which fungi is one. For this exhibition, we are shining a spotlight on the incredible diversity of fungi.

    All items in the exhibition are for sale with proceeds going to the artists and to assisting Foundation and Friends of the Botanic Gardens to continue supporting horticulture, conservation, scientific research and educations programs within your Botanic Gardens.

    Save the date! Get a first look at Fungi Exhibition at the Opening celebration on Saturday, 11 July 2020. Mingle with the artists, sip on a glass of Tyrrell’s wine, and enjoy shopping for artworks in the beautiful Lion Gate Lodge before the general public.

    To apply to exhibit in the Fungi Exhibition, please contact Foundation and Friends office 02 92318182  by Friday, 7 Febraury 2020.
