Warwick Art Gallery Tree Jumper Exhibition

18 to 28 July 2019

Warwick Art Gallery proudly manages the yarn bombed tree jumper exhibition for Jumpers and Jazz in July. We transform the CBD into an outdoor art gallery and dress our trees in charming textile artwork. Anyone can participate with entries coming from near and far each year that are flamboyant, colourful, heart-warming and often comical

Our annual tree jumper exhibition has woven its way into the hearts of thousands of artisans and visitors for fifteen years.  The exhibition features 99 trees in the CBD "yarnbombed" by artists, local businesses, community groups and everyday folks from near and far.
