RED GUM: CRAFTS OF NECESSITY, HISTORICAL INTRODUCTION (2.3 MB)

 

This article on River Red Gum (Eucalyptus camaldulensis) was originally published as the historical introduction to Red Gum: crafts of necessity (1989). This was an illustrated catalogue for the travelling exhibition of the same name which displayed historical objects and contemporary art works crafted from red gum. The exhibition was curated by co-author John Dallwitz for South Australia’s Jam Factory.
