Botanical Art Group
The Botanical Art Group formed in 2003 for members of the Friends with a special interest in botanical art, drawing and painting.
The aim of the Group is to foster the role of, and promote botanical artists and illustrators and provide a forum for those wishing to pursue this exacting art form.
There are about 15-20 regular artist members with a wide variety of skils, from beginners to semi-professionals.
The Group meet weekly on Saturdays, 12-4pm, in the Lecture Room, Goodman Building, on Hackney Road, Adelaide Botanic Gardens.
There are no formal classes on a weekly basis, but members share ideas, discuss projects, offer constructve advice and paint or draw in their chosen medium. Each brings their own drawing/painting equipment and something to draw.
A small fee is charged when attending the weekly group, Workshops are fee paying.
Members hold exhibitions in the National Wine Centre of Australia, Cnr North Tce & Botanic Rd, Adelaide at various times.
The main exhibition 'Framing Nature' is a biennial exhibition last Exhibition was 2017, next Exhibition is 2019.
Workshops are held during the course of the year, with a variety of tutors both local and from interstate. All are aimed at expanding the knowledge and repertoire of the members.
Attend Saturdays regularly or occasionally, or just for workshops.
