Canberra Botanical @ M16 Artspace

On at the same time as the Floriade is a delightful exhibition of precise paintings of flora at M16 Artspace. Botanical art has a heritage tied to the great voyages of discovery of the 14, 15, 16 and 1700s. They are the artists who pay great attention to the detail of the amazing plants on the planet. This exhibition has flora and fauna but nearly all of it is marked by realism and precision. I have included some pics but much better to go to the link below where the M16 people have included some gorgeous examples of what is on the walls
