Artworks from two Illawarra residents have been selected to appear in the inaugural Wild Thing exhibition at the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney.
Paintings by Nicole Karin of Woonona and Ayeesha McComb of Wollongong will feature among a diverse range of works from Australian and international artists, inspired by the wildlife at the gardens. Mediums include painting, drawing, photography, printmaking and ceramics.
The gardens support an enormous amount of wildlife, including vulnerable species, and provide valuable green space for birds, mammals, reptiles, insects, spiders, frogs, fish and crustaceans.
Proceeds from the sale of original artworks go to the artists and to Foundation and Friends of the Botanic Gardens, helping the not-for-profit organisation to continue its support of the horticulture, conservation, scientific research and education programs within your Botanic Gardens.
