    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”.

    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).

    The Fungi exhibition which Botanica artists who exhibited in 2018 and 2019 were all invited to register for has been postponed and will take place in autumn 2021. As the Fungi exhibition was always going to have a large component of botanical artwork, we have decided to merge the two exhibitions.

    The exhibition will include botanical artworks amongst other kinds of art, including sculpture, photography, printmaking, ceramics and painting. The Botanica artists will be selected as per our usual guidelines, whereas the non-Botanica artists will be selected under a different criteria.

    The standard for the botanical artwork will continue to remain very high and that the non-Botanica artists will be exhibiting very different work. This range of work is a compromise in an unfortunate and unprecedented time.

    We will be working hard to promote this exhibition next year and expect to attract a new audience for your work as well. Some of the work that was planned for the July Fungi exhibition included large, colourful fungi sculptures for outside Lion Gate Lodge, a series of ceramic fungi bells for outside, contemporary photography of fungi from our own Gardens, and a range of small sculptures for inside Lion Gate Lodge.

    The exhibition committee includes previous Botanica curators and dedicated members who will be working on the exhibition to ensure its success.

    For The Love of Plants Exhibition October 2020 - POSTPONED

    This exhibition was planned for October 2020 at the Bowral and District Art Society (BDAS) Gallery.  Unfortunately, due to the ongoing situation with the COVID-19 pandemic, it has now been postponed.  We hope 2021 will be a more settled year and a new date for the exhibition will be confirmed in due course.

    Any enquiries should be directed to BDAS Botanic Artists:

    Email bdasbotanicartists17@gmail.com

    The exhibition is being organised by the Bowral and District Art Society (BDAS) Botanical Artists, an untutored group who regularly meet and work together in the BDAS studios.
    The exhibition covers a wide range of approaches to botanical art.
    The last year has shown, particularly to those of us living in the Southern Highlands and surrounding fire affected areas, that nature and plants are both fragile and incredibly resilient.
    We hope that this exhibition, at this difficult time, will highlight the true value of plants.
    Precious, beautiful and extraordinary.
    Artists are invited to submit works for the exhibition.
    All enquiries should be directed to BDAS Botanic Artists:
