Freshly grown sculpture and installation art will be exhibited in Maundrell Park in Petersham on Sunday 9 December from 11am to 4pm.
Marrickville Council’s Art in the Park festival will this year have the theme Cross Pollinations, using art to recall the history of the park as a former plant nursery and hothouse.
The installations will be site-specific in that they are designed to exist only in the space for which they were created.
“The curators have brought together a very diverse mix of artists, working across a range of media and spanning the full spectrum from students and recent graduates to more established artists,” Marrickville Mayor Dimitrios Thanos said.
Exhibiting artists include James Gulliver Hancock, winner of the 2006 Freedman Foundation Travelling Scholarship; Indonesian collective Tanam Untuk Kehidupan; and Jane Gilling who recently featured in Sculpture by the Sea 2007.
People are encouraged to bring along a picnic and spend the day at the event.
Maundrell Park is located at the corner of Stanmore Rd and Hopetoun St, Petersham.
