Depictions of the floral have been present through the entirety of human artistic practice.
Utilising the collection of works by some of Australia's most well known and respected artists at the AGNSW, FLORA AUSTRALIS presents historical and contemporary examinations of the humble flower. AGNSW works from Margaret Olley, Margaret Preston, Tim Maguire, Arthur Streeton, Tom Roberts and Rupert Bunny join contemporary works created especially for the exhibition by Lucy Culliton, Laura Jones, Nicholas Harding and Alesandro Ljubicic. It will be the first time the BVRG has held an exhibition of this size and quality.
Bega Valley Regional Gallery is supported by the NSW Government through Arts NSW.
