Special 20th Anniversary Secret Gardens Tour Mugs

Secret Garden Tour 2013 mugIn celebration of our 20th Secret Gardens Tour (SGT), the Carnegie Gallery has commissioned local ceramic artist Greg Voison to create special 20th anniversary SGT mugs. A cream coloured mug glazed in either turquoise or green on the inside, these mugs are decorated with the same wood engraving image by Wes Bates used on the poster. Mugs sell for $25 plus HST and are available for purchase in the gallery.

About the Poster
The artwork for the Secret Gardens Tour poster was created by Wesley Bates and prints from the limited edition run are now available for purchase at the Gallery. When you come in to buy your ticket for the Secret Gardens Tour, have a look at this amazing handmade woodblock print, specially made to promote our 2013 Secret Gardens Tour. The detail is incredible! Can you find the elf?

“Elemental Garden”, 5 colour wood engraving printed on Gampi Torinoko* paper
Image 17.5 x 13.8 cm. (paper 33 x 24 cm.)

*Gampi Torinoko paper is now permanently out of production. The Japanese maker died with the papermaking knowledge. Gampi fibre is like mulberry. The fibres between the bark and the wood are the fibres used.
