Welcome to Sentinel Trees, an exhibition of miniature art works from 13 artists and 9 authors.
We are excited and pleased to be part of the Urban Tree Festival 2020.

Artist: Dean Reddick Writer: Ed Arantus

Rolling Rolling
Time never stands still
Each turn of the sun
Is a day worth the wait for
Breathe breathe
Kick the sky
Break your head
Fast from those dreams evermore

Roll Up!

Rats and rotgrubs,
Midges and marmadukes,
Skate pond skaters,
Wake up for the greatest day of all
Cottontail jack rabbits
Open eyes wide
Rise up now!
Let’s dance together at the feast of the ball

About the Writer

About the Artist

Dean is an artist and an art therapist. He frequently works with casting process and loves drawing trees.

About the Bonsai

This is an 'indoor bonsai' with the beautiful name, 'Tree of a Thousand Stars' due to its plentiful, tiny white flowers. It can be quite hard to keep as it doesn't like to be too hot, cold dry or wet and requires a humid atmosphere. I have had this tree for several months and it seems to be doing okay in my kitchen so far!
