Opening reception Thursday, July 15, 7 - 10 pm
at Side Space Gallery, 1080 St. Clair Ave. West (west of Oakwood).
This exhibition was produced as a fund raising initiative for LEAF - Local Enhancement and Appreciation of Forests, a non-profit organization dedicated to the protection and improvement of Toronto's urban forest.
A number of respected Torontonians were invited to select their favorite tree in the city, a tree that had particular meaning for them in terms of sense of belonging, diversity, community building, or heritage preservation.
Pietropaolo photographed the selected trees and produced 16 photographic prints --16x24 inches, in a limited edition of 4. LEAF is offering these prints for sale at a special price as part of its fund raising drive. All the proceeds will go to LEAF, and will be used for planting trees, education and training initiatives.
Pietropaolo strongly supports LEAF's efforts for a greener Toronto and a healthier tree canopy, and invite you to consider supporting them also and what better way than through a purchase of one of these prints!
