This event took place on Friday 2 October 2009.
Taking advantage of one of Audrey Eagle's rare visits to Wellington, the Friends of Te Papa were thrilled for the opportunity to offer their members a chance to meet Audrey and hear her talk about her work as an award-winning botanical artist. The talk was facilitated by Claire Murdoch, Publisher Te Papa Press, who in 2006 published the artist's life work as the Montana medal-wining Eagle's Complete Trees and Shrubs of New Zealand.
