Thirty of the country's leading botanical illustrators have been invited to exhibit a body of work which focuses on a particular project and/or study of a plant species. The exhibition will also highlight some key Australian historical figures in botanical illustration whose works have provided a rich and important foundation for the continued growth of this discipline.
