    This exhibition explores the often surprising ways in which contemporary artists use trees as an inspiration as well as a medium for their art.  Made from bark, wood, roots, seedpods, leaves and sap, over 30 varied works and a selection of hands-on interactive opportunities ask us to consider our relationship with trees as a vital natural force.  From Diego Stocco's music compositions made with trees and leaves to Joseph Wheelwright's figurative root sculptures, this exhibition celebrates the varied ways in which people are connected to and creatively inspired by trees.
