Celebrating The Works Of Beatrix Farrand
June 26 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
On the 150th anniversary of Beatrix Farrand’s birth, Judith B. Tankard’s Beatrix Farrand: Garden Artist, Landscape Architect takes readers on a tour of Beatrix Farrand’s works, celebrating her influence on succeeding generations of women landscape architects. Join us for a lecture and book signing in the Stable auditorium.
Judith B. Tankard is a landscape historian, preservation consultant, and the author or co-author of ten books on historic gardens and garden designers, most recently Gardens of the Arts and Crafts Movement. Other books include Ellen Shipman and the American Garden (winner of the J. B. Jackson Book Prize) and three works on Gertrude Jekyll. Tankard taught at the Landscape Institute of Harvard University for more than twenty years, and served as a board member of the Beatrix Farrand Society. She is a frequent lecturer on landscape history and a contributor to the British journal Hortus.
By the Way Berkshires is a digital magazine exploring creative life and community — art and performance, food and the outdoors — and I’m writing it for you, with local voices, because I’ve gotten to know this rich part of the world as a writer and journalist, and I want to share it with you.If you’d like to see the website grow, you can join me for a few dollars a month, enough for a cup of coffee and a cider doughnut. Members get access to extra stories and multimedia, itineraries a bookmark tool. Let me know what you're looking for, and we’ll explore together.
