The Friends Botanic Art Groups are showing us a new side of life with their latest exhibition at the Visitor Centre.

The end-of-year special Australian Native Wildlife exhibition will be open until 12 January 2020. It features over 150 original paintings, drawings and other works of Australian native wildlife, as well as a large selection of greeting cards, bookmarks and other goods – many of them ideal as Christmas gifts. There are both framed and unframed works available in a range of sizes and prices.

The works have all been created by artists from the Friends of the Australian National Botanic Gardens Botanic Art Groups. Many of them show off their talents as both wildlife and botanical illustrators with birds, animals, and insects shown amongst the native plants of their habitat.

Unlike previous exhibitions, the framed works can be collected immediately - if you purchase one as a gift there will be no need to wait until the exhibition closes.

The Visitor Centre will be open between 9:30am and 4:30pm on every day except Christmas Day.
