Exhibition held at the Maquarie University Art Gallery, NSW, 5 July - 15 August, 2002
Throughout history, fossils have always fired the human imagination. Palaeographia will be an exhibition of original Australian artworks and fossil specimens, drawing its inspiration from the rich Australian fossil record. It will illustrate the long and varied history of life on our ancient continent and its adjacent marine realm through exhibiting scientific illustrations, interpretative artworks and original specimens. A common focus to both scientific study and the artmaking process is the exploration of the world around us; Palaeographia will stand to enhance and project this fusion of art and science.
