Art in the Garden: Illuminating Nature, by Ellen Hoverkamp

WHEN: Thursday, October 11, 2012 at 6:00PM - 8:00PM
WHERE: Blithewold Mansion; Living Room

Artist Ellen Hoverkamp was a pioneer in the use of the flatbed scanner in creating fine art. Her technique involves making intricate arrangements from plants, vegetables, and natural objects directly on the scanner. The light from the scanner reflects the subject, with the the arrangement appearing to glow against a dark background in the resulting photograph. She has also collaborated on, and illustrated, Ken Druse’s new, critically acclaimed book, Natural Companions: The Garden Lover's Guide to Plant Combinations.

Join us for an evening with Ellen Hoverkamp, as she takes us through her creative process and shares some of her exquisite work, including freshly “minted” scanner art containing materials from Blithewold’s gardens and grounds.

Hoverkamp will be glad to sign copies of, Natural Companions: The Garden Lover's Guide to Plant Combinations, which will be available for purchase.

  • North Garden inventory (Jul 17, '15)
    I’m asked often enough to name my favorite plant and season that it’s a little strange that hardly anyone* ever asks which is my favorite garden. Not that I could possibly pick a favorite (the pollinator garden). But since I featured the Rose Garden (my other favorite) last week, I can’t let this week go by without giving Blithewold’s pièce de […]
  • Rose Garden inventory (Jul 10, '15)
    Thank goodness for rainy days. Without them, we stay outside and never get around to tidying the potting shed, defrosting the fridge, or keeping up with the paperwork. (Not to mention how happy the gardens are after a good downpour.) I’m grateful too that Betsy worked on the blog last week because aside from the pleasure of seeing Blithewold’s gardens […]
