A piece of artwork created by Knox women, including Nina Amjerg-Pedersen (pictured) was last week unveiled at the Rowville Neighbourhood House to mark International Women's Day.
Called Suburban Bloom, the installation was about showcasing the creativity of local women, while also providing a unique focal point for their experiences, mayor Karin Orpen said.
The artwork is a large tree-like sculpture made from recycled materials, native grasses, flowers and vines gathered from local parks and reserves.
Also on display are personal statements written by women on speech bubble blackboards at the Knox Festival.
"The messages on these boards will detail the hopes, ideas, dreams and insights these women have — and share them with the world," Cr Orpen said.
The exhibition is on display in Rowville until April 8 before moving to Coonara Community House in Upper Ferntree Gully until May 13.
