Minky Grant joins the 'Kauri Project" exhibition
Exhibition to be held August 2010
In 2007 the agathis moore tree died as a result of defoliation by the flying fox colony that has become established in the heritage trees.
The timber from the agathis moore was milled to be distributed to designers, woodworkers and artists who have transformed it into special pieces in commemoration of the Agathis moorei. Objects ranging from musical instruments, furniture, carving, turned bowls and boxes, woodcut prints, theatrical sets and sculpture to a small boat will be for sale at the Kauri Project Exhibition.
Minky Grant is the only Jeweller asked to join the Kauri Project. Her range of Timber Jewellery will be included in the Kauri Project Exhibition.
Opening night is Friday 20 August, 6 pm to 8 pm. Cost $35, Friends of The Gardens’ Members $25, includes refreshments. Bookings essential.
