Created from a Dream: A Gift of Calligraphy


6 April - 12 May 2018

This exhibition presents a very special community project - the exquisite handmade book The North Coast Regional Botanic Garden – Created from a Dream. Made by the Coffs Calligraphers group in 2007 on the occasion of their 20th anniversary and presented as a gift to the city, this unique book recounts the transformation of the botanic garden from a night soil depot in the early 20th century to the stunning garden it is today. Explore its history through the inscriptions of talented local calligraphers.
