Marina Gilmore, from Dananggara Corridors Bushcare Group, organised with Parramatta Council and the Parramatta Art Society to put together this temporary art display at Gallery Gardens Reserve, Old Toongabbie, called 'Drawing Inspiration from the Bush'. There was also grateful assistance from Home Hardware &Timber at Pendle Hill.
There were finished pieces, easels set up with new works started plus a sculpture in progress. I apologise for not knowing all the artist's names.
