An exhibition marking the 75th Anniversary of the National Trust of Australia in New South Wales, celebrates the abundant plant life of New South Wales with works from Trust collections and contemporary commissioned works. Live entertainment and a complimentary glass of wine between 3pm and 5pm.
In 2021 curator Gavin Wilson brings another thought provoking exhibition to the S.H. Ervin Gallery, Tree of Life: a testament to endurance. The concept for Tree of Life is the central motif that signifies the challenges we face. What remains of the natural world is the one beacon in a perilous age of drought, fire, floods and plague, exacerbated by the constant reality of climate change. The recent horrific fire season experienced across the country will go down as the greatest extinction event for Australian wildlife and habitats since Colonisation. This major exhibition led by First Nations artists will generate a fresh, positive energy towards the reclamation of diminishing natural resources.
Threads woven through Tree of Life will recognise the deep spiritual and physical associations that connect all forms of life. Life that must be nurtured as we chart a course of action through this perilous age of climate change, pandemics and wildfires.
Book to enjoy light refreshments or lunch at the café, (call 02 9258 0175) with onsite music and a complimentary glass of wine for over 18’s between 3pm and 5pm.
