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.

    If this had been a “normal” summer (is there any such thing?) by now we would probably be feeling beat by the heat. The gardens might have started to look sun scorched, faded, and dusty — IF we hadn’t planned ahead to prevent that from happening. We always plan — and then plant — for […]
  • August blooms (Aug 15, '14)
    I’m so glad it’s Garden Bloggers Bloom Day today because I can’t think of a better way to celebrate my return to the gardens after a week’s vacation. And looking back in my archives here I’m amazed to see that I haven’t participated in an August Garden Bloggers Bloom Day since 2008. (Where have I […]
