Join us on Saturday, November 30th for the opening reception of SongLines, a selection of paintings by Marina Adams. Referring to her recent exhibition at Salon94 in New York City, Barry Schabsky writes in ArtForum: “…the artist uses complementary contrasts to push deepcolors toward paradoxically shadowy brilliance. Color is just about everything in Adams’s
work, and everything seems animated, in movement. The energy impelling this motion is never agitated or frantic but rather feels steady, relaxed, and spontaneously responsive.”

The exhibition will be on view in the summer studio on view Fridays and Saturdays, November 30 to December 28, from 12:00 to 4:00 p.m.

Umberto Pasti Lecture and Book Signing

December 1 at 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

December 1, 2019 at 12:00 pm 2:00 pm

Join us in the summer studio for an enlightening talk by Italian writer and horticulturist Umberto Pasti. He’ll discuss his world-famous garden, Rohuna, set on a stony hillside high above the Atlantic ocean south of Tangier that is the subject of his latest book, Eden Revisited: A Garden in Northern Morocco, with stunning photography by Ngoc Minh Ngo. Pasti’s passion for the wild flora of Tangier and its surrounding region led him to create Rohuna, where he has transplanted thousands of plants rescued from Moroccan construction sites.

  • Madoo in Manhattan 2019

    The 6th annual Robert Dash Garden Design Lecture
    (DE)CONSTRUCTING PARADISE
    Enzo Enea
    We were honored to welcome Enzo Enea, Swiss landscape architect and one of the world’s most prominent tree collectors to the 2019 Madoo in Manhattan. Enea received numerous gold and silver awards at the Giardina show in Basel and Zurich and in 1998 a significant certificate of merit at the prestigious Chelsea Flower Show in London. A hallmark of Enzo Enea’s projects is the fusion of outdoor and indoor spaces. In 2010, one of Enea’s most noteworthy projects, the Tree Museum, officially opened its gates to the public. Situated on breathtaking land near Upper Lake Zurich in Rapperswil-Jona, Switzerland, the Tree Museum exhibits individual trees from the collection of Enzo Enea as well contemporary sculpture, combining landscape, botany, art, architecture, and design.

  • Madoo in Manhattan

    The 5th annual Robert Dash Garden Design Lecture
    THE DRAMATIC POTENTIAL OF LANDSCAPE
    Todd Longstaffe-Gowan

    We were honored to welcome British Landscape Architect Todd Longstaffe-Gowan to this year’s Madoo in Manhattan lecture. Longstaffe-Gowan is Gardens Adviser to Historic Royal Palaces, Landscape Adviser to the Crown Estate Paving Commission in Regent’s Park and President, and founding member of the London Parks and Gardens Trust. Todd has taken on a range of diverse projects both in Britain and abroad, many of them have included an element of conservation. In March 2012 he and his colleague James Fox completed the redesign of Kensington Palace Gardens to mark the Diamond Jubilee of Her Majesty The Queen.

    Todd brings to his garden design a sense of the complexities of our relation to the past that is informed by his training and experience as an architect, landscape architect, cultural geographer and historian. He has a strong interest in the sculptural and dramatic potential of landscapes, and in the ways in which their aesthetic possibilities relate to the uses, activities and symbolic functions for which they are destined.
