VIRTUAL Tempestuous Beauty: How Artists Throughout The Ages Were Inspired By Flowers and Gardens

Artists have long been drawn to the natural world to stimulate their creativity. The rich symbolism, diverse color palettes, and delicate, changing nature of flowers have been a source of inspiration across cultures for centuries.

 Come join us for this virtual talk presented by art lecturer Janet Mandel.  We will be introduced to an array of astonishing images from throughout art history, some iconic and some unfamiliar, reminding us why flowers and gardens give us hope, nourish our souls, and elicit pleasure and happiness.

Janet is now retired after teaching for 32 years in NJ’s public schools, the last eighteen of which were at Columbia High School in Maplewood, where she taught English, art history, and world languages and cultures.  She has been  presenting illustrated lectures on a variety of art history topics at museums, adult schools, libraries, senior centers, and similar venues.

 The program is free and open to all; no registration is required.
