The situation we, and the world, are currently experiencing has had an effect on Botaniko.
We last met as a group was on Wednesday, 18 March. At that time our latest exhibition Frederick Mackie – Quaker Plantsman was on display at the East Coast Heritage Museum at Swansea and we were working on our next project Windsong with the Tasmanian Herbarium.The Frederick Mackie exhibition has now been transported back to Hobart and is awaiting installation at the Morris Miller Library, University of Tasmania. We’re still working on our next exhibition Windsong which has been deferred and, at this stage, will be exhibited in the Salon Gallery, Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery from 4 December 2020.
With the Premier’s announcement that our border will remain closed until December, the workshop we had scheduled for October with Jenny Phillips from Melbourne has been postponed. Details will be available on this site when the workshop can go ahead.
