Art & Science Talk
Wed 13 Jun
An evening with resident artist Donna Davis and Dr Sandra Abell
Artist in residence Donna Davis and Dr Sandra Abell from the Australian Tropical Herbarium (ATH) will present a talk to discuss the May/June artist residency; which creatively explored Dr Abell's work investigating the decline of the Northern Bettong.
With a particular focus on the Bettong's unique diet of truffle fungi and the ecological implications of species loss, Davis will explore the Gardens living collection as well as visit the ATH; using this research and process to inspire the development of a series of mixed media works during her stay.
Learn more about the decline of the Northern Bettong and hear Dr Abell, with Davis, present a talk to discuss their work, engaging with the topic through both an artistic and scientific lens.
