Lisa, who lives in Wallingford, has been a gardener at Chanticleer Garden in Wayne for the past 28 years. Chanticleer is a public garden with incredibly artistic horticultural installations, which Garden Design magazine has called “America’s most inspiring garden.” Lisa has been photographing the garden for 7 years. Her photos capture the evolution of the garden over time, recording moods and memories. Lisa said, “I seek new perspectives, ways to frame a view, light that is transformative. For me the photographs inform the garden and the garden inspires the photographs.” There will be remarks from the artist and Chanticleer Garden Executive Director Bill Thomas at approximately 2:45 pm.
