WELCOME TO SPRING!
Well respected artist Tracey Deep will be showcasing her beautiful floating sculpture shadow spirit in the #ausgardenshow Grand Floral Pavilion. Inspired by a recent trip to Uluru & the Olga’s, it’s a reflection of the changing light, playful shadows & dreamlike landscape. The repetitive nature of the bamboo, it’s twisting and turning, reflects the landscape and wonders of Mother Nature.
Marvel at the exquisite work of celebrated artist and sculptor Stephen Coburn as well as the delicate floral paintings of artist Janet Cullen.
