An exhibition, Towards the ‘Little Eagle Glyph’ documenting the processes involved in the making of the sculpture was held at The Link from 23 October to 02 December 2019. Since the sculpture’s launch (18 October 2019) the artist has maintained her very busy practice with solo exhibitions including Glyphs (Australian Galleries Sydney, February/March 2020);and numerous group exhibitions in Canberra (More than human: The animal in the age of the Anthropocene , ANU School of Art and Design Gallery: Seeing Canberra , Canberra Museum and Gallery); and elsewhere (The Collection in Focus: New Acquisitions and As far as the eye can see , both at the Cowra Regional Art Gallery), and A Collection of Stranger Things at the Mornington Peninsula Regional Gallery. While these may be deferred because of our current health crisis please contact the relevant galleries for future dates for these exhibitions.

Bot’s powerful and evocative work can be viewed online in the GX Art Trail catalogue and seen in the Vivid display home by Achieve Homes.
