I am on the Steering committee for New Zealand's involvement in a worldwide botanical art exhibition which will be held in 2018 at the Auckland Botanic Gardens. It's the brainchild of the American Society of Botanical Artists and so far 13 countries have signed up to hold their own exhibition, with at least 5 more considering it.  


There has been a resurgence in botanical art over the last 10+ years and this juried exhibition will really help push this niche genre into the public domain and give exposure to the many very talented botanical artists we have in NZ. We would love to think artists in your area would submit some work for consideration!
