Saturday 24 April – Sunday 9 May 2021  - The world of Fungi and mycelium is full of scientific wonder, merged with contemporary botanical art. The Foundation and Friends of the Botanic Gardens present two wonderful exhibitions together, Fungi x Botanica

Mycelium is the earth’s underground natural internet, mushrooms being the resulting fruiting bodies of this exciting nearly invisible world.  This exhibition will include many genres including, photography, graphite, watercolour and acrylic art works, ceramics, glass, paper art and sculpture all focusing on the intriguing world of FUNGI!! 

This will be the 21st exhibition of Botanica to be held in our Sydney Gardens. Over the years Botanica has set a high benchmark in the botanical art world with many of the artists having enviable worldwide reputations. The Foundation & Friends have played a significant role in the recognition of excellence in this genre and celebrate each artist’s success. After a very successful 20th Anniversary exhibition in 2019 we are looking forward to welcoming these artists to once again treat us to the results of their many talents. Although some of the botanical artists will be submitting works of fungi, mushrooms and lichens, others will be focusing on plants and pollinators.
