It can be hard to narrow down which exhibitions to add to your list, so we’ve done the hard work for you and selected some of the exhibitions where nature meets art.

Here are five you might like to check out:

1. ‘Engage, Learn, Conserve’ at Cleland Wildlife Park

2. ‘Cycles in Time’ at the Adelaide Botanic Garden

Don’t miss this installation by Kate Jenkins, Patricia Rose and Kristin Wohlers at the Adelaide Botanic Garden that links the Barossa Valley with Adelaide through colour, texture and form.

The artists have chosen stone that has been through geologically turbulent times to reflect political and environmental challenges. The metaphor for this installation is represented by the ‘Gordian Knot’ that connects the installation.

When’s it on?

28 July – 31 August
