The Kingston Library is currently hosting the final display of Botaniko’s exhibition Discovering the Flora of Wind Song – Botanical Art and Science. This exhibition was first displayed in the Salon Gallery at the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery from December 2020 to February this year.
In 2017 members of Botaniko accompanied botanists from the Tasmanian Herbarium, a division of the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery, on the Herbarium’s inaugural Expedition of Discovery to Wind Song, a 220 hectare former farming property, situated at Little Swanport on Tasmania’s east coast.
This exhibition, presenting styles of botanical art from watercolour to dyeing, highlights some of the flora of the region which is often not growing in public access areas.
The exhibition will be on display at the Library until 30 November 2021.
