Minky Grant joins the 'Kauri Project" exhibition

Exhibition to be held August 2010

Exhibition to be held August 2010

The Kauri Project is a joint project between the Friends of The Gardens and the Botanic Gardens Trust highlighting the challenges facing the Royal Botanic Gardens in managing a landscape of exceptional heritage significance and celebrating a grand and beautiful heritage Kauri Pine, Agathis moore tree that grew in the Gardens for over 150 years. The tree was collected as a seedling from New Caledonia and planted by Charles Moore, Director of the Gardens, in 1853.

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.

For more information and Opening Night bookings contact the Friends of The Gardens on 02 9231 8182, or  friends@rbgsyd.nsw.gov.au
