1:00 Doors Open

2:00 Speaker:   Holly Gordon, Photographer
         Topic:  Buds and Blooms

Allergy sufferers…no worries… Join Long Island resident and artist Holly Gordon for her slide program, Blooms and Beyond. Her art, rooted in gardens, is the result of a life-long focus on perfect blooms and quests for infinite palettes of color. Once a painter and always a photographer, she has traveled the world exploring Nature’s wonders as well as glorious gardens of renown. Monet’s Giverny, English Gardens of Devon and Dorset and the Canterbury Gardens of New Zealand are but a few…and some images in this program grew from Planting Fields’ soil.  The invention of the camera in the 1800’s expanded new ways of seeing, thinking and painting…and right now technology is redefining photography just as Impressionism once redefined painting. Blooms and Beyond is a visual bouquet of Holly Gordon’s creative transformation. Be dazzled and delighted. You may even return home with renewed excitement to grab your trowel and your camera!!
