Tricia Smout's Language of Nature

Imagine what 12 twelve months as the Artist in Residence at the Brisbane Botanical Gardens could look like. Tricia Smout has spent this year doing just that and the grand finale of an incredible, hectic, creative, collaborative and artistic year is the Language of Nature exhibition. If you haven't had a chance to visit, the celebration of her 2012 residency kicks off on 6 November open from 10am-4pm each day at Richard Randall Art Studio. The studio is located at the Brisbane Botanic gardens and the exhibition finishes on 14 November.

Tricia has posted descriptions and photos of her amazing year on her blog - and it has been a year of collaboration and sharing this opportunity with so many groups, encouraging so many artists to participate in her year as A-i-R.  My favourite part of Tricia's year has been her unwaning enthusiasm and passion for inclusiveness, and the 495 flowers of friendship. Tricia's blog contains so many photos of how 2012 has been shared with so many. Congratulations Tricia on being such a fantastic ambassador for the arts, and the way you've inspired so many of us to be part of your year. Everyone is invited to this celebration so come along and hope to see you there.
