16 Dec Wan’din’in Community Exhibition
The Tree Place Community Exhibition at Wan’din’in Arts Space in Eumundi shares the stories and creativity of our community. During the last two years there have been workshops, collaborations and exhibitions, bringing together all ages, and interests that share a common passion. Love of environment, culture, history, and the lessons that can be learnt when we embrace the resilience of nature and people, also the sense of well-being that comes from our relationship with trees.
Included in this exhibition are spoon carvers of all levels, including work from well known carvers Jeff Frazer, Gary Field, Carol Russel and Corrie Wright also a collection from up and coming carvers at Noosa Pengari School. Added to this are the Tree Stories and Mythology from two local ceramicists Jane Welsh and Bec Lindenman, wearable art from Julie Gardner. Images from Dallas Sutherland and Viki Murray, Bunya Inspired Forms from the Bunya Artist Collaboration, and the unveiling of ‘Tree Spirit’ a collaboration between Shane Christensen and the Ancient Tree. A collection of artwork created by the wider community at workshops held around the Sunshine Coast, and a local 200 million year old Pentaxylon fossilised tree.
The Beauty of this work, is the diversity and stories that keep evolving as Tree Place grows, the collaborations of people and the networks of community that are spreading. The workshops have been a way to give people creative tools to inspire them to learn more about plants, seasons, habitats, history and notice what is happening around them.
