Horticulture lectures at Quarryhill
Quarryhill Botanical Garden in Glen Ellen will explore the nature of our connection to plants with lectures that will explain how the plant kingdom has informed their own accomplished work in the fields of art, design, and literature. Come explore these intersections, and with them, discover more reasons to advance the conservation, study, and cultivation of the flora of Asia.
On March 17, Terese Tse Bartholomew, Curator Emeritus of Himalayan Art and Chinese Decorative Art at the Asian Art Museum of San Francisco, will give a lecture on the Hidden Botanical Meanings in Chinese Art.
On April 21, Paul Discoe, Temple Builder, author of “Zen Architecture,” and Founder of Joinery Structures, will speak on Reverence for Materials in Zen Architecture.
And on May 19, Anthony Eglin, author of the “English Garden Mystery Series,” will lecture on The Novel Garden.
Cost per lecture is $10 for Quarryhill members, $15 for non-members.
Lectures will begin at 5:30 p.m. at Quarryhill, 12841 Sonoma Highway in Glen Ellen. Guests are welcome to tour the garden before the talk begins. If in print, book titles will be available for purchase and signing.
