Celia Rosser: Banksia Lady

8 Aug 2020 - 28 Feb 2021

Banksia Lady celebrates the internationally acclaimed botanical illustrator Celia Rosser, and her outstanding contribution to the study of the Banksia. This show draws together artworks which document a selection of the genus of the Banksia, as well as specimens that Rosser collected herself during her working life. 

Drawing on loans from both the Monash University Museum of Art and the artist herself, visitors will be entranced by the large scale works which Rosser produced over a twenty-five-year period.

Complementing these works are cuttings and samples of the Banksia plants on loan from the National Herbarium of Victoria at the Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria.
