Members’ talk and Q&A
For many of us, especially over the last year, public and private gardens have become places of freedom and sanctuary.
Gardens have inspired artists across cultures and millennia, depicted for their beauty, but also used as metaphors for such things as the passing of time and the seasons, the fecundity of nature, paradise, and the creation of art itself.
Join Gallery Educator Belle Smith to learn about Medieval and Renaissance depictions of the Virgin Mary in her beautiful enclosed garden, and about arguably the most famous garden in art, Monet’s Giverny.
After the talk, Belle will be happy to answer your questions in a live Q&A
