"Working with Stone - Creating a Connection with the Spirit of Place" is the title of the 7 p.m. lecture next Tuesday co-sponsored Trinity Church and the Arnold Arboretum of Harvard University.
The gardener's perspective is the perfect loci for seeking inward and reaching outward, for ordering the experience of time and space, and observing higher orders.
Dan Snow is a designer of outdoor spaces in stone, and an art maker specializing is dry stone constructions. He is the author of In the Company of Stone and Listening to Stone—Hardy Structures, Perilous Follies, and Other Tangles with Nature and the subject of the PBS documentary Stone Rising. Book-signing to follow. For more information on his work visit www.inthecompanyofstone.com.
Dan Snow's presentation will examine the many uses of stone in the garden; how stone can support a garden design, or simply be the garden itself. Illustrated with images of his work, the presentation will also explore the "give and take" experience of working in nature, and the connection to spirit expressed through stone.
Tickets $20 member, $25 non member, available at The Shop at Trinity (206 Clarendon Street, lower level), by phone (617.536.0944 x225) or online www.arboretum.harvard.edu.
