Wednesday, September 21st, 2016

A fallen tree should never die quietly, never mind who’s around to hear it! With the success of oneTree 2015, the Robert Bateman Centre and Live Edge Design have once again partnered to bring you oneTree 2017. We invite you to join us in celebrating the life of a single tree through the beauty of art. The Tree For over a hundred years a single Walnut Tree has been witness to the everyday life of residents on St. Charles Street in Victoria’s Rockland neighbourhood. The tree had to come down in 2016 due to safety concerns and will now be transformed by artists into one-of-a-kind pieces of art.

Selected pieces will form the oneTree 2017, an exhibit at the Robert Bateman Centre from November 2017 – January 2018.

Call to Artists

The deadline for the Artist submission has been extended to October 14th. Download the artist submission form to show us what you would make from the tree! Home & History of the Tree The neighbourhood of Rockland was originally a steep and rocky landscape full of Garry Oak trees and Camas flower meadows. In 1865 it became a subdivision and became popular as a site for homes of the new merchant class, the Attorney-General, and most famously the Dunsmuir family at Craigdarroch Castle.
