Local artist Alexandra Mills will be exhibiting her work completed during her residency at North Sydney Council run Ridge St Artists’ Studios at May Gibbs’ Nutcote.

The exhibition features drawings and sculptures expressing the characters and variety of local banksias and is also a response by Alexandra to May Gibb’s life long association with the tree through her famous ‘Banksia Man’ characters.
