Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens Bicentenary ExhibitionCelebrating 200 years

As part of the Royal Tasmanian Botanical Garden’s bicentenary celebrations, members of Botaniko produced 30 pieces of artwork reflecting some of the significant botanical specimens grown in our cherished Botanical Gardens. The exhibition, titled Celebrating 200 years through Botanical Illustration, was on display in the Pod, at the Botanical Gardens. The artworks provided a timeline of plants with interesting stories, over the course of the Garden’s 200 years.

The exhibition was run in August and September 2018 with members of Botaniko in attendance daily.
