W. Gary Smith - Nature’s Patterns
Sponsored By: Metro Hort Group
Come and enjoy the visual vocabulary of patterns in nature, art, and garden design. For more than 20 years, Gary Smith has been assembling a provocative collection of images that show how simple patterns reoccur in a wide range of scale—from the microscopic to that of the entire Universe. This presentation will enrich the way you look at the landscape around you every day.
An award winning landscape architect and artist who celebrates the connections between people and plants, Gary Smith combines art and horticulture to explore ecological design and artistic abstraction. He is the 2011 recipient of the American Horticultural Society’s Landscape Design Award, and his book From Art to Landscape: Unleashing Creativity in Garden Design received an AHS Book Award.
