Join us for this illuminating lecture and book signing event. In Gardens of the Arts and Crafts Movement, award-winning landscape scholar Judith B. Tankard explores the inspirations, characteristics, and development of garden design during this iconic movement. Tankard presents a selection of houses and gardens of the era from Great Britain and North America—including Greenwood Gardens. With almost 300 illustrations and photographs, and an emphasis on the diversity of designers who helped forge the movement, Gardens of the Arts and Crafts Movement provides “a compelling narrative in which to understand how this period of garden design remains relevant and important to how we design and interpret landscapes today.” —Massachusetts Horticultural Society’s Leaflet Review
