ONETREE EXHIBITION 2017


LIVE EDGE DESIGN & THE ROBERT BATEMAN CENTRE PRESENT ONETREE 2017

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 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 was witness to the everyday life of residents on St. Charles Street in Victoria’s Rockland neighborhood. The tree had to come down in 2016 due to safety concern. It was then transformed by artists into one-of-a-kind pieces of art. Selected pieces formed the oneTree 2017, an exhibit at the Robert Bateman Centre from that ran from November 2017 – January 2018.

Home & History of the Tree

The neighborhood of Rockland was originally a steep and rocky landscape full of Garry Oak trees and Camas flower meadows. It was described favorably by the first colonial land surveyor, Joseph Despard Pemberton, as a desirable place to live. 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. Today, St. Charles Manor is a 53-suite senior care home run by Trillium Boutique Senior Living.

About Live Edge Design

Live Edge Design creates custom furniture from locally salvaged trees. The trees tell the designers and craftsmen their stories. The ensuing collaboration of materials, craftspeople, and customers culminates in the finest of functional art. Honoring the tree and enriching those it touches on its journey. From sourcing the trees to drying, design, production, and finishing, it all happens at their workshop in Duncan, BC. See for yourself by visiting online at liveedgedesign.com.
