BIDWELL'S TREE: One Tree, One Story, One Exhibition
Bidwell’s Tree is an art and design exhibition that will take the audience on an historic journey from 1850 to 2016. The exhibition will see one tree refashioned into multiple artworks and pieces of fine furniture.
The exhibition is an artistic celebration of the life of a beautiful tree - Kigelia pinnata (Sausage Tree) and the man who propagated it - John Carne Bidwell.
Trudie Leigo is co-curating this touring exhibition which is scheduled to open in 2019 at Gatakers Artspace, Maryborough.
This exhibition has been made possible by RADF funding through the generous support of Fraser Coast Regional Council and Arts Queensland.
