A few more photos

It probably doesn't hurt to share a few more photos of the community participation in the official opening of the Peace in the Trees Sculptural walk?

An earlier Art4place blog post provides a good over of the journey of the creation and installation of the Peace in the Trees sculptures.

The official ribbon spanning Judy Gardiner's piece - Reflection.

The official opening was about celebrating the achievement of a piece of community art that recognised the contribution of community to its creation including: the artists; Sunshine Coast Council; local service groups, organisations and businesses; and the art installers. They were all invited to celebrate the contribution they had made to this community art.

Getting the official stuff underway (Cr McKay, Julie Hauritz and Barry Smith) - like the colour coordination.

Few shots of the community gathering

 The magic moment - the ribbon is cut - the walk is open.

Couple of photos of nine of the artists who were present. 

Big thanks to all the artists: Kim Moreland, Vivienne Bennett, Katie White, Ken Munsie, Michael Givenchy, Cathy Lawley, Carolyn Sheather, Edith-Ann Murray, James Crowther, Judy Gardinder, Sally Fisher, Emma McDonald, Barry Smith, Craig Medson; and after Craig's death, Wayne Markwort.

Ably supported by other Art4place committee members foreground and to the right!!!

Feedback suggests that many people find the walk an uplifting experience.

Peace in the Trees in the news

Just thought we would share a few cuttings from the Glasshouse Country and Maleny News celebrating the opening of the Peace in the Trees Scupltural walk at the beginning of September 2015. Big thank you to Cr Jenny McKay for doing the honours of officially opening the walk.

Great to see various groups represented Rotary and Maleny Visitor Information Centre); and also grand that families and friends of the artists came to the opening and participated in planting some Lomandras and joining in the celebratory sausage sizzle.
