This exhibition brings together fifty of Scarth-Johnson’s finest botanical paintings of flowering plants from the Endeavour River (Waalumbaal Birri) area alongside a number of her rarely seen floral arrangement paintings, private sketchbooks, early drawings, personal photographs and fascinating correspondence records with leading botanists and herbariums across the globe.
The exhibition offers a rare opportunity to view original works by the artist as this is the first time the collection, on loan from the Vera Scarth- Johnson Gallery, Nature’s Powerhouse, has been displayed outside of Cooktown.
