The first exhibition at Wyndham Art Gallery since Wyndham City Council employed a visual art curator in November 2011. CHRISTMAS HEART was the result of a call-to-arms by curator megan evans in order to launch an exhibition for Christmas. Artists were invited to make a work of art from the traditional Christmas tree. The exhibition also included a 12-foot high Christmas tree in the gallery foyer decorated in black, designed to alert visitors to their carbon footprint during the festive season – it became controversially known as ‘the black Christmas tree’.
