Hosted by the North Carolina Chapter in collaboration with Reynolda House Museum
June 10, 2021
On April 11th, 2021, the ICAA North Carolina Chapter was pleased to collaborate with the Reynolda House Museum of American Art to present a lecture by art historian Judith B. Tankard: A Sense of Harmony: Gardens of the Arts and Crafts Movement.
The Arts and Crafts Movement is known for its rich legacy of architecture and decorative arts in both Britain and the United States. The movement also played an important role in defining the garden as a harmonious component of the house. Arts and Crafts gardens were designed with an appreciation for local craftsmanship and historical antecedents. The movement championed regional traditions, from the Cotswolds to New England. Beautiful flower borders, regional garden architecture, and a sense of intimacy are essential characteristics that can inspire today's gardens. A selection of gardens both old and new on both sides of the Atlantic shows the movement's diversity and appeal.
Judith B. Tankard is an art historian specializing in landscape history. She is the author of a dozen award-winning books on British and American garden designers, including Gertrude Jekyll, Beatrix Farrand, and Ellen Shipman. Her latest book, Gardens of the Arts and Crafts Movement, was published by Timber Press.
Presented in collaboration with the Reynolda House Museum of American Art as part of the Bunny Mellon Curricula at the Institute of Classical Architecture & Art. The ICAA is very grateful to the Gerard B. Lambert Foundation for its generous support of this program, along with the Curricula's Lead Co-Sponsor Hollander Design Landscape Architects, Film Series Co-Sponsor Janice Parker Landscape Architects, and Continuing Education and Public Programs Co-Sponsor Charlotte Moss.
