Art in Gardens project

“Gardens are not made by singing ‘oh how beautiful!’ and sitting in the shade.”

– Rudyard Kipling

CERES has always been receptive to new artwork and the latest is a depiction of a Sacred Kingfisher and a Butterfly.  An outline has been carved in the hard basalt boulders at the back of the old cafe site, and will be painted in weather resistant paint.  The kingfisher in particular stands out with its bright colors, and the butterfly is behind Isambard’s feet and is yet to be coloured.

This is part of an “Art in Gardens” project by CERES and the work is by Conrad Clark, a local artist based in Northcote.  The work is far from finished, and Conrad is usually here working on the carvings on Mondays & Tuesdays. He loves to chat and you can see him here doing just that with the admiring audience (from left) of Isambard Logan, Myria Waugh and Freya Waugh.  Conrad is the older chap on the right.
