In Toronto, the Gardiner Museum’s G Party kicked off the winter season with its annual tree exhibition, curated by renowned artist and environmentalist David Buckland. The mix of tree installations, made from natural recycled and sustainable materials, included a tower of terracotta planting pots. In partnership with Nordstrom, the event raised over $100,000 for the Gardiner’s outreach and educational programs.
