reFraming Nature Art Exhibition

03 9650 6398

7 - 22 Oct 2017

Following the success of reFraming Nature 2015, the Friends of the Royal Botanic Gardens (FRBG) in Melbourne is again running its biennial natural history art exhibition – reFraming Nature 2017.

In 2015, they had over 130 artists entering works, and expect to exceed this number in 2017. Free entry with optional gold coin donation.

reFraming Nature 2017 will display artworks depicting ferns, fungi, lichen, insects, butterflies, marine life, pond life, shells, birds, fossils, amphibians as well as botanical subjects. All the paintings and drawings exhibited aim to be as scientifically accurate as possible while expressing, at the same time, artistic vision and creative individuality.

All framed works are for sale as well as artists cards, unframed originals and prints. Along with two gallery rooms of larger works, they will once again have their 'room of miniatures’ containing small artworks A5 or smaller in size.

These smaller images are usually cheaper than the larger artworks and hence provide a great opportunity for the public to purchase original artwork that won’t break the bank. They will also have two other rooms full of larger artwork – there should be something for anyone and everyone.
