BOTANICAL ARTS EXHIBITION (article first published : 2007-10-10)

The KZNSA Gallery is currently hosting an exhibition by the Botanical Arts Association of Southern Africa (BAASA).

BAASA is a non-profit organisation dedicated to promoting public awareness of botanical art. It is open to all botanical artists, ranging from scientific illustrators to realistic flower painters, as well as collectors and those interested in furthering the tradition of botanical art.

The KZN Branch of BAASA was formed in 1999, and its first president was Elsa Pooley, a botanical artist and author of the best-selling field guides Trees of Natal, Zululand and Transkei and Wild Flowers of KwaZulu-Natal and the Eastern Region.

The collection of work on show is a travelling exhibition that has already been to the Jack Heath Gallery in Pietermaritzburg and the Empangeni Historical Cultural and Art Museum. The work comprises scientific illustrations, botanical art (botanical portraits) and also experimental works in different media.

The exhibition runs at the KZNSA until October 21.
