“Artistic Endeavour” Exhibition – Mundubbera Regional Art Gallery

More than 250 years after the HMB Endeavour’s voyage to Australian shores, an exhibition of contemporary botanical artwork is highlighting the contribution that the scientists and artists on this voyage made to documenting Australia’s biodiversity.
Scientists Joseph Banks and Daniel Solander, together with illustrator Sydney Parkinson, collected over 1,000 species of plants and animals during their 70-day journey along the east coast of Australia.
The Botanical Artists’ Society of Queensland (BASQ) has responded to this historical voyage by developing an exhibition of contemporary botanical portraits based on the plants collected in 1770 by Joseph Banks and Daniel Solander along with the scientific illustrations by Sydney Parkinson.
