Exceptional Botanical and Nature Artists at St Arnaud

THIS visually stunning exhibition opening at the St Arnaud Rail Station Raillery Hub Gallery this Friday 10 April, reveals how botanicals and fauna can elicit cultural, historic, geographic, social and scientific ideas.

“Naturally Inspired” features 12 professional and accomplished artists from Bendigo Botanical Gardens Illustrators and ‘offshoot’ contemporary and traditional nature artists known as the ‘Friday Group’.

Their works explore our wider relationship to the doctrine of plants and nature. This is the first time that artists from these two groups have exhibited together.

Those unfamiliar with the botanical art discipline may recall seeing detailed illustrations of cultivars in an encyclopedia, museum, science journal, or reference book at school.

Botanical illustrators continue to be relied upon to detail new herbarium specimens as important historic material and these artists have continued to preserve the broad collection at Bendigo’s gardens since the group was founded in 2000.

They hope to inspire other artists throughout Victoria to catalogue botanicals found in civic botanic gardens.

This exhibition also draws together contemporary and traditional artists.

Founded in 2005, the Friday Group, led by formally trained artists including renowned water colour artist, Nick Truscott, began tutoring others in a wider range of mediums and subjects such as birds, frogs and fish and garden invertebrates.

The artists emanating from Maryborough, Lockington, Elmore, and Bendigo districts, bring a true regional reflection of art in nature in alcohol ink, watercolors and acrylics. The popularity of the group is increasing every year with up to 15 regulars.

Working alongside each other in garden surrounds, providing encouragement and respectful reflection, we might expect to find a central influence in each expression. However, the diversity of this exhibition speaks otherwise. Group harmony has otherwise stimulated a metamorphosis of individual skill and perception.

The “Naturally Inspired” Exhibition is presented at the historic St Arnaud Rail Station, Queens Avenue and is open to the public from Friday to Monday, 11am to 4pm until 7 June, 2021.
