Paper meets Wood

art-exhibition- (1)

The first bloke who decided to turn tree planting into a special event was a dude named J.Sterling Morton and that was waaaaay back in 1872 in Nebraska, USA. It later on spread world wide and South Africans loved it so much that we  went arbour CRAZY. Now not only do we have an Arbour Day but also an Arbour Week and yes a whole Arbour MONTH.

So arbour day and week has passed but September is not yet over and we are still feeling Tree-inspired.

Come the 19th of September we are turning our oDD little space into a gallery again with the help of 2 artists who’s works doesn’t fall too far from the tree. The one is fine hand crafted works made out of paper & the other robust recycled wood turned into modern beauty. Together they make for an exhibition not to be missed

Come enjoy a free glass of wine while you take in the talent that is Woodlady & Daniel Du Preez.
