Artists from WABA were recently invited to work with the Australian National Insect Collection, CSIRO, Canberra to produce a stunning collection of artworks representing Australian insects.

The exhibition was a feature event at the Australian Entomological Society’s 50th Anniversary Conference held at the Shine Dome from 28 September to 1 October with delegates travelling from around the globe to attend.

Highlights of the exhibition included Nilavan Adam’s beautiful Bentwing Swift moth, Natalie Maras’ sculptural vessel, Sarah Mitchell’s Cooloola Monster Under the Stars and Suzanne Oakman’s sculptural representations of the Cooloola Monster. We also welcomed our first international member Stacey Thaldon who entered a vibrant painting of the Spotted Swamp Fly. A series of cards was also launched with six Australian insects represented to honour entomologists of note: David Rentz, Ian Common, Doug Waterhouse, Ebbe Neilson, Ian Mackerras and John Lawrence.

Cards are available for purchase here.
