Alfred Deakin Prime Ministerial Library, Deakin Geelong Waterfront Campus

Banks' Florilegium: the Australian Botanical Prints is the latest exhibition from Deakin University Library to showcase items exclusively from the Library's own Special Collections. This visually stunning exhibition features a selection of prints taken from the engraved plates prepared by Joseph Banks after his circumnavigation of the globe with Captain Cook in 1768-1771. The plates depict the new flora he found on the voyage and the prints on display represent a selection of Australian plants.

Alex Zubryn: The Urban Experience: People, Nature and Place

11 September 2013-19 October 2013


Deakin University Art Gallery (Melbourne Burwood Campus)

This survey of Alex Zubryn's paintings immerses us in the complexity of urban scenes and vibrant community life as he experiences them. Zubryn identifies with urban environments, creating a psychological response to the inhabitants - animate and inanimate - of his locale. Included are images that remind us of the landforms that co-exist within the city and trees that seem vulnerable in relation to the built environment.
