Not Nature

November 24 at 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 1:00pm on Saturday, repeating until December 22, 2018

The Madoo Conservancy is pleased to present Not Nature, a group exhibition featuring artists Laurie Lambrecht, Steve Miller, and Darius Yektai. The opening cocktail reception will be held on Saturday, November 24th from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m., and the exhibition will be on view Saturdays from 1:00 to 4:00 pm through December 22, 2018. This is our second annual artist-curated fall exhibition.

 

Each artist featured in Not Nature reveals their own profound connection to our environment, as land, sea and air are absorbed through the senses and materialized as their art form. While nature remains the source and essence of their work, artists Lambrecht, Miller, and Yektai have taken their own various departures from naturalistic representation. We look forward to welcoming this exhibition of local artists in our Summer Studio, the original studio of Madoo’s founder, Robert Dash.

  • 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.

    He is the author of several books, including The London Town Garden, 1700-1840 (Yale University Press, 2001), The Gardens and Parks at Hampton Court Palace (Francis Lincoln, 2005) and The London Square: Gardens in the Midst of Town (Yale University Press, 2012).
