Help Tree Up Your Local area
Humphrey Herington and Eastern Forest Nursery have made it possible for the first 50 visitors to the 3in1 exhibitions at Big Time Gallery Drake 24 September – 17 October to receive a free seed ball with native seeds to repopulate the local area.
The exhibitions (including Living Next Door to Ellis) open Saturday September 24th 1pm and continue until October 24th Bigtime Gallery 8/9 Bruxner Hwy, Drake Ph: 0267376790 email:email@example.com
Working with Eastern Forest Nursery, 848 Bruxner Highway, South Gundurimba, NSW 2480 who provided assistance and materials for the seed balls, has been another example of the local community supporting the arts and helping the environment at the same time.
“Throwing the Seed – Over to You” project will continue on from “Living NExt Door to Ellis” as photo’s of the seeds growing and rejuvenating our native species are exhibited on the website http://www.deborahgowerceramics.com.
Members of our community can be part of the virtual exhibition simply by photographing their seeds growing and sending the photo’s to me.”
Living Next Door to Ellis A series of ceramic works inspired by the Flower Hunter Ellis Rowan –
In the early 1900’s Ellis, a petite English woman known as the Flower Hunter, made adventurous trips into North Queensland and Papua New Guinea to paint native flora. One of her collections is held at the Qld Museum and this is the inspiration for my exhibition. If too many of our Native Flora become extinct then the only record we will have of these species will be Ellis Rowan’s paintings and ceramic ware on which to serve up our explanations on what happened to our native flora.
