What is the connection among monks, medicaments and mythical creatures, such as unicorns?
To find out, join artist Lynden Beesley on Thursday, September 11, from 6:30 to 7:30 pm, for her artist’s talk entitled, Hortus Conclusus: Symbolism and Practicality.
Learn how the symbolism associated with pomegranates ties into her garden installation, Hortus Conclusus, which is currently on view in the Gallery’s outdoor courtyard space. Listen as Beesley unlocks the secrets of her enclosed garden, and immediately following the talk stay for the celebratory event from 7:30 to 9:00 pm.
