16th International travel exhibition on display
12 September 2022
Although we finally have opened to the public, we aren't quite ready to commit to an exhibition given the vagaries of the pandemic. We have decided to hang the travel show from our 16th International Exhibition of Botanical Art & Illustration (2019). Organized from the artworks that now are part of the Institute's collection, this travel exhibition features artworks by 37 artists who reside in 13 countries (Australia, Brazil, England, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Scotland, South Korea, Turkey, the United States and Wales). When the show closes in our gallery in December, we will again offer it as a travel exhibition available for booking until September 2024.
