2nd Sep 2015 - 25th Oct 2015

Botanica 2015'…  
An Exhibition by the Mackay Botanical Art Interest Group
Mackay Regional Botanic Gardens Lagoons Gallery

The Botanica 2015 Exhibition's features Orchids both native and exotic. The artists use a range of techniques to portray their chosen subject. The exhibition complements the 20th Australian Orchid Council Conference and Show being held in Mackay during September.

Botanical art combines detail, accuracy and artistry, with many hours needed for each watercolour painting, acrylic painting or graphite drawing.  A glimpse into the inner workings of the botanical artists is provided by displays of their sketchbooks, photos, odd pods and all things flora, showing how the artists take a live specimen and create a "living" piece of botanical art.

Featured orchid image is Dendrobium cv. by Julie Inkson.

Meet the Artists: Wednesday September 2nd 10am - 1pm.
Selected works are available for sale. Entry is free and the Café will be open.

Mackay Regional Botanic Gardens Lagoons Gallery is open Wednesday to Friday 10 am - 3pm and Weekends from 9am - 4pm
Cost: Free
