2nd MARCH 2010: exhibition opening on Friday, from 7pm,

at Serpentine Community Gallery, 17 Bridge St, North Lismore, NSW.

Dear Friends and Artists of the Serpentine Community Gallery.

We were proud to invite you to the opening of

the Growth exhibition.

Growth was a culmination of the TREE and FIBRE exhibitions

both of which celebrated the tree and natural fibres.

We live in an area which understands

the power and purpose of these ancient wonders.

With an unlimited source of inspiration,

local established and emerging artists

came together to exhibit a diverse selection of works

across a broad selection of mediums.

Serpentine provides a family friendly space,

chalk drawing available for the kids.

If you cared to join us for the art,

plus cheese and a cold drink or a glass of wine,

we asked you to please bring your favourite glass or cup with you.

Celebrating nature isn't the same with a disposable plastic cup.

Exhibition ran from the 5th until the 26th of March

Trees are an important component of the natural landscape because of their prevention of erosion and the provision of a weather-sheltered ecosystem in and under their foliage. They also play an important role in producing oxygen and reducing carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, as well as moderating ground temperatures. They are also elements in landscaping and agriculture, both for their aesthetic appeal and their orchardcrops (such as apples). Wood from trees is a building material, as well as a primary energy source in many developing countries. Trees also play a role in many of the world's mythologies. - Wikipedia.
