Welcome to Colborne Street Gallery.
Year of the Garden
June 30 - August 28, 2022
Joins us for the Opening Reception Saturday, July 16, 2022 from 2-5pm
The garden has been a popular subject matter in architecture and art history for centuries. One only needs to think of the Persian Gardens at the Taj Mahal, the Baroque Gardens at Versailles, and perhaps the most well-known of artist gardens, Monet’s Giverny. There are many occasions where flowers and gardens became entrenched in the visual history of Western culture; the Garden of Eden in religious artworks, vases of flowers in still life painting, planted gardens, farming as subject matter, and even the personification of the flower. Plants and flowers can be found in Egyptian wall paintings dating as far back as 1300-1500 B.C. where repeating floral patterns mirror the repetitive nature of the wild. The garden is arguably one of the oldest and most revisited subject matters in art history and continues to inspire today.
