The Leaf Project

The Leaf Project was devised to celebrate Canada's 150th birthday in 2017, and also to create an art project that the people of the town could contribute to. It started out small, then grew and grew, and was finally assembled last week. It's currently hanging in a corner of the Gallery, but will eventually make it's way to one of the public buildings. I contributed some leaves, so did my grandchildren.
Leaves were made of paper, then laminated, but there were also leaves made of pottery, stone, glass, and metal.

I was going to say, "Leaf me alone," but then I saw how beautiful this is and what a great project it is and I must admit that I've only been to Canada on two fleeting trips but if it was a bit warmer up that way and I was a lot younger, I'd probably move north! :) .
