Celebrate Creativity at The Cultural Landscape Foundation's Garden Dialogues!

Join Lisa at The Cultural Landscape Foundation’s Los Angeles Garden Dialogues on Sunday, May 21. The theme for this year’s dialogues is “Artists in Their Gardens.” Lisa will explore the concept of the artist’s garden as sanctuary and laboratory with Pamela Palmer and Howard Rosen at their Light/Breeze House in Mar Vista, and with Nord Eriksson at his home in Pasadena.

The Light/Breeze House is a playful and engaging home and garden designed by Pamela Palmer and Howard Rosen, principals of Artecho Architecture + Landscape Architecture. A radical restructuring of a 1939 bungalow created a loft-like interior with a dramatic connection to the rear garden.

Bamboo and exuberant subtropical plants frame the garden, while the succulent collection is on display at the entry, around the pool, and even on the garage wall. Guests will recognize the plants as inspiration for Howard's digital art.

Landscape architect Nord Eriksson's garden lies at the foothills of the San Gabriel mountains, and the colors and textures of his garden celebrate the location.

Building on a garden framework by Edward Huntsman-Trout, Nord has created a serene sequence of garden spaces inspired by the landscape legacy of Eriksson, Peters and Thoms, as well as classic mid-century landscapes and his travels in Spain.

Participants will enjoy a light lunch at the Light/Breeze House, and drinks and appetizers at the Eriksson garden. For additional information and to purchase tickets visit the TCLF website.We hope to see you at both events!
