Friday 4 October to Monday 7 October, 9.30 am – 4.30 pm — Crosbie Morrison Building
Discover the finest work of the ACT Woodcraft Guild, meet the members and discover a variety of woodworking techniques through demonstrations.
This father–daughter exhibition by Penny Deacon and Kevin Baker explores the beauty of Australian flora in local landscapes and the wildlife that it draws.
The artists hope to share some of the delight they feel when experiencing Australia’s unspoilt native flora in its natural environment.
Kevin Baker’s eye-catching and innovative glass methods feature native flora and wildlife, some of which may be spotted outside by the eagle-eyed visitor to the Gardens.
Penny Deacon’s oil and watercolour paintings are inspired by a childhood spent playing and exploring in the bush around the Blue Mountains and, later, Canberra. For this she owes a debt of gratitude to her parents, Kevin and Jane, and her husband Andrew, for their inspiration and encouragement.
