August 2019 — Artists in the Field

An exhibition of works from students of Natural History Illustration at the University of Newcastle.

"The art of Natural History Illustration always starts with observation, field work and research. Through field work, a Natural History Illustrator produces detailed works that seek to accurately describe form and structure, what we actually see, and what story this might tell.  The works featured in this exhibition will take you on a journey of discovery and learning in the field.  We hope it inspires you to look more closely at the intricacies of nature when on your next walk in your local environment."
