Join us to celebrate the iconic river red gum
Local artists are sharing their love for the river red gum through a new exhibition at the Albury Library Museum.
'Reflections on River Red Gum' includes postcard-sized prints, photos, prose, and paintings celebrating the iconic Australian species.
In time for National Tree Day, the Department of Planning and Environment has partnered with Murray Arts and a range of local artists to create the exhibition.
Julie-Anne Harty, Director, said it was a great opportunity for skilled local artists to shine a light on these incredible trees.
"'The river red gum is the backdrop for so much of our lives. If you live in a riverside town, you know how important these trees are to our communities and our wildlife," Julie-Anne said.
"This project is a chance to celebrate our love for the species and the role it plays – providing inspiration, sanctuary, habitat, and more.
"Come down to the library to learn more about river red gums and how we can support their health into the future."
'Reflections on River Red Gum' is on display at Albury City Library from 30 July to 17 September. The opening day includes talks from the artists and a species expert on the river red gums.
And there's still time to be involved. Anyone keen to share their reflections on river red gums in a postcard-sized work, can email artwork to firstname.lastname@example.org
