William T Cooper – Botanical Art of the Tropical Rainforest

Event by Cairns Art Gallery.

 

William T Cooper (1934–2015) was notable as a painter of birds, however he was also a masterful botanical artist, producing botanical illustrations of rainforest fruits and hundreds of drawings of plants that were produced opportunistically for potential use in paintings.

 

This exhibition brings together over 100 works, many of which have not been on public exhibition before, from private collections around Australia and the collections of the State Library of New South Wales and the National Library of Australia.

 

To strengthen the educational component of the exhibition, many of the works in the exhibition will be displayed together with botanical specimens from the collection of the Australian Tropical Herbarium at James Cook University.

 

Exhibition runs from 28th August to 13th February 2022.
