Join us for an evening lecture followed by a wine and dessert reception on April 6. Engraver and artist Andrew Raftery created Autobiography of a Garden, an installation of 12 earthenware plates transfer-printed with engraving that depict the gardening tasks he undertook each month of the year in his mother's garden. Explore this horticulturally driven work as Andrew shares insights into the relationship between nature's inherent rhythms, the garden as inspiration, and the eight-year creation process of this unique installation which will be on display during and after the lecture.
