A Garden of Story, Lea Bucknell: Forest City Garden Project

A different kind of community garden: bringing together spaces and stories through people and plants

You are invited to a reception: Thursday June 30th at 6:00 P.M.

The McIntosh Gallery, in collaboration with the Art Exchange, is pleased to present Lea Bucknell: Forest City Garden Project. As the McIntosh's 2011 Artist in the Community, Bucknell combines her interests in geography and art through this unique project.

Through a series of interviews and exchanges Bucknell has been collecting plants and stories from people throughout London. These are currently on display in recycled wood planters installed in an old store in historic Wortley Village.

Lea Bucknell: Forest City Garden Project is open from Wednesday to Saturday 10:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M until July 1st, 2011. (or by appointment) at 156 Wortley Road.
