Gardens and art go together perfectly, don't they? If you agree, then this interesting sounding conference in September may be of interest.

Artists and the Garden: New Perspectives will explore the relationship between cultural production and the garden, across creative disciplines and media, from the 18th century until the present day.

According to the blurb:

In this historical setting [Hestercombe in Taunton, Somerset], ‘Artists and the Garden: New Perspectives’ draws together artists, art historians, critics and curators who reflect on the multifaceted web of relations and influences between cultural creativity and the garden. Illustrated papers will explore the historical, contemporary and experiential role of the garden through disciplines as diverse as painting, interior architecture, installation art, literature, garden design and drawing.

This live conference, held in Somerset, will take place between 27 - 28 September 2021. Registration is £120.
