Formed in 2014, Botaniko, (Esperanto for botanical), is a small group
botanical artists, who, by invitation, collaborate towards yearly
exhibitions depicting plants found in gardens and other venues of historical significance
in Tasmania. Past projects include the gardens of the Port Arthur Historic Site, the 200th anniversary of the Royal
Tasmanian Botanical Gardens, The Tasmanian Herbarium, The Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery (TMAG), The Windsong
property, and in 2022, the trees of historical significance found in
the garden of Tasmania's Government House. Titled Floral Splendour - Government House Garden, some of works are displayed at today's concert. The whole exhibition will be travelling in the Northern part of Tasmania after today's viewing.
