Wilmslow Art trail is in its third year and will be on for four days, the 13th, 14th, 15th and 16th of October, 2016. Garry will be showing his work, along with fellow cabinet maker, Suzanne Hodgson, at his own gallery in Stoney Lane off Knutsford Road. Pictured is a quirky new exhibition piece, in beautiful English walnut and sycamore, which will be among the many items on display. Other artists and crafts people will be showing work at various venues around the town centre. Put the dates in your diary and look out for brochures and signs.
Garry is excited to be included among 45 makers and artists contributing to Treecycle, an inspiring project celebrating the 200th anniversary of the Botanic Gardens in Sydney, Australia. The "Friends" of the gardens have taken the timber from 23 trees that have been culled from the arboretum due to old age, storm damage or disease. This timber has been distributed to the selected participants and made into a wide range of beautiful artifacts. In April 2016 Garry shared the workshop of Leon and Ginny Sadubin, curators of the project, to make his piece. He used two contrasting woods, a eucalyptus called brown barrel and river sheoak from the casuarina family, to make a small but beautifully detailed cabinet for hall or living room. Treecycle is open to the public for ten days from the 12th August, 2016 at the Sydney Botanic Gardens.
