All framed works are for sale as well as artists cards, unframed originals and prints.

Following the success of reFraming Nature 2015 and 2017, the Friends of the Royal Botanic Gardens (FRBGM) in Melbourne is again running its biennial natural history art exhibition – reFraming Nature 2019.  In 2015, we had over 130 artists entering works, and exceeded this number in 2017.

reFraming Nature 2019 will display artworks depicting ferns, fungi, lichen, insects, butterflies, marine life, pond life, shells, birds, fossils, amphibians as well as botanical subjects. All the paintings and drawings exhibited aim to be as scientifically accurate as possible while expressing, at the same time, artistic vision and creative individuality. All framed works are for sale as well as artists cards, unframed originals and prints. Along with two gallery rooms of larger works, we will once again have our “room of miniatures’ containing small artworks A5 or smaller in size. These smaller images are usually cheaper than the larger artworks and hence provide a great opportunity for the public to purchase original artwork that won’t break the bank. We will also have two other rooms full of larger artwork – there should be something for anyone and everyone.

The Friends would like to thank Metro Tunnel's Creative Program for sponsoring the reFraming Nature Exhibition. With Anzac Station under construction nearby, it is fantastic that Metro Tunnel are able to support the local community. Thanks Metro Tunnel! #metrotunnelcreativeprogram
