Artistic Endeavour: Contemporary botanical artists’ response to the legacy of Banks, Solander and Parkinson marks the 250th anniversary of the HMB Endeavour’s voyage along the east coast of Australia. Scientists Joseph Banks and Daniel Solander, together with illustrator Sydney Parkinson, gathered and recorded many “curious plants (they) met with on shore”.
Co-curated by Beth Jackson in collaboration with artist and botanist Dr Nita C Lester, this exhibition reflects on the significance of botanical specimens collected from our region 250 years ago, and the emergence of botanical art. It showcases sixty-five exquisite works by thirty-three members of the Botanical Artists’ Society of Queensland (BASQ).
