The Song Tree Exhibition - Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre

Saturday 21 September to Saturday 27 October 2019  9am - 4pm

Artist Michelle Belgiorno will exhibit a large tree-like installation at the Casula Powerhouse in Liverpool in September comprising leaves embroidered by women from diverse cultural backgrounds including several members from the Embroiderers' Guild NSW. 
The Song Tree Project brought women together to share songs and culture through a communal stitching project. 

Participants shared their memories of childhood songs, lullabies and nursery rhymes through needlework and embroidery techniques of their choice.
  
The resulting installation stitches together - both literally and figuratively - a song tree that celebrates our rich cultural heritage. 


Exhibition Launch - will be held in the Marsden Gallery at the Casula Powerhouse on Saturday 21 September 2pm to 4pm. All EGNSW participants are welcome. The Song Tree will remain on display between 9am and 4pm until Saturday October 27.
