A new exhibition of photos in Castlemaine is set to have a go at overturning the still widespread notion that our trees are monotonously uniform. Trees of the Mount Alexander Region, mounted by the Friends of the Box-Ironbark Forests, will run at Togs Place Café from 26 February till 31 March 2016. The exhibition aims to highlight the amazing variety to be seen in our local indigenous trees: even those of the same genus—for example, eucalypts—can exhibit a wild variety of shape and colour, as well as hosting an extraordinary diversity of wildlife.
The exhibition photos have been selected from over 125 photos that were submitted to FOBIF during December and January after a ‘call for photos’ was posted on their website. In June the exhibition will have a second showing at the new arts venue, the Newstead Railway Arts Hub.
Photos will be for sale with proceeds going to FOBIF to cover costs.
