The Sky is Falling is about preserving Sydney's trees
'The Sky is Falling' is an art exhibition about the beauty of nature and its destruction by man for his own purpose.

Project Kollective Spaces is a group of local artists who have joined together because they share a common bond. They have a love of nature and want to make people aware of what is happening to the trees in our ever-expanding densely populated city.

The exhibition 'The Sky is Falling' explores the huge impact urban development is having on the quality of our environment. There is a rising tension between our built and natural environment.

Trees play a significant role in determining the quality of our environment. This exhibition asks us to observe and acknowledge the beauty and purpose of trees.

The exhibition focuses on the cultural and environmental significance of trees. These artists have done a magnificent job of showing nature's purpose of trees and their relationship with people. To do this they have used photography, mixed-media, film, drawing and painting.

Artist Gabbi Lancaster, who has several nature paintings in this exhibition, is an artist I admire. I have attended two of her exhibitions in the past. The way she uses colour in her nature paintings is so beautiful and delicate. She brings nature alive with her love of trees and plant-life. It lifts my spirit, as I am sure it will lift yours.

Another painting is by artist Anni Haque. This is a more traditional painting in its mood. Here we look at a lovely Autumn scene of trees giving shade and leaves turning to gold.

Gabbi Lancaster is also an art teacher. The next painting is a collage done by her students showing their love of trees. Also written under this painting are some of the comments they made on the subject. I found the way they expressed themselves honestly, which is refreshing. Children seem to have a way of doing this beautifully.

These children are part of the South Coogee Art Club. Here is some of what the children said in regards their love of the trees:

I love trees because they help us breathe.
I love trees because they give homes for birds and other animals.
I love trees, they give us oxygen and we would die without them.
I love trees because they give us shade and also beauty, that we take for granted.

The last work I will show is Gabbi Lancaster working in her studio at home.
