Preservation Program Manager Lee Buttala of The Garden Conservancy discusses four gardens whose creators—writers, painters, designers, and architects—applied the lessons of their profession to the landscape, creating deeply personal gardens of exceptional merit. By merging their sense of color, rhythm and form with intriguing plant selections and vernacular materials, each of these gardeners is responsible for providing us with another way of seeing the garden as a work of art. They reveal that what makes a garden magical is not only genius of place, but the ability of an individual garden maker to interpret this quality and add another layer of artistry into the mix. Reception at 6:45pm, Lecture at 7:15pm.
