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.

Since […]
  • Plant by plant (Jun 08, '15)
    Gardening is purported to be one of the best stress relievers — and it is! — but the weeks we spend planting the Blithewold gardens always make me feel a little panicky; my blood pressure rises as the to-do list lengthens. We have so many plants to get in the ground, so many more to get […]
