Nature's beauty captured by artists

The Botanic Art Bazaar is an event not to be missed and is a great opportunity to find unique gifts for those "hard to buy for" individuals.
In support of the Friends of the Botanic Gardens and Sherwood Arboretum, the Botanique Art Bazaar will feature work by 12 local artists, with a focus on Brisbane's natural environment particularly in and around the Botanic Gardens.

Original works including jewellery, ceramics, felting, sculptures, prints, paintings, textiles and mixed media will be on display and for sale. The Botanique Art Bazaar will feature the works of Sue Mansill and Nancy Brown, along with other well known artists.
The artists' works transcend modern living in both decorative and practical ways, with a number of the artists repurposing old and found objects. You are invited to meet the artists at a special evening opening on Wednesday, May 25th (6.30pm until 8.30pm).
