Orchid Extravaganza

Upcoming exhibition at Gardens by the Bay

Artwork submission deadline: 1 June, 2023

For Members Only

A collaboration between BASS and GBB - have your artwork exhibited during an upcoming show in the Flower Dome: ‘Orchid Extravaganza - Orchids of the East Tropics.’

The show is inspired by historical botanical exploration and Victorian-era interest in the orchids of tropical Asia. Artwork chosen for the exhibition will be shown as prints amongst the orchids (perfect for our overseas members).
