ART ON VIEW: In the Garden of Old Age

Art on View1

“In the Garden of Old Age”, a half verse and half photography collaboration between Poet Nina Freedlander Gibans and Photographer Abby Star

Opening Reception
Wednesday, May 25 | 5:30-7PM

This exhibit features Nina Gibans and Abby Star’s hanging installation of their book, “In the Garden of Old Age.” Star’s photography of the life cycle of nature is paired with Gibans’ poems about growing older. Several of the book’s more than 50 poems are inspired by life at Gibans retirement community, Judson Park. As you flip through the book’s pages, bright flowers give way to autumnal leaves, the colors becoming more and more monochromatic. The final poems are flanked by black and white photos of streams and tall forest canopies.

The exhibit runs from Wednesday, May 25 to Monday, August 15, at the Nature Center. Pieces may be purchased for a fee with a percentage of proceeds benefiting the Nature Center.
