Pamela Burgess: Cross Sections of a Landscape: August 2 - November 2

Hora de OroPamela Burgess:

Cross Sections of a Landscape - a photographic series

Detail shots of native flora transformed into images of otherworldly, macro landscapes. Right: Hora de Oro (Golden Hour of Light) archival pigment print.

Burgess comments, "Intellectually, my work is located at the intersection of art, botany and conservation biology with a focus on drought-tolerant California native flora. Although not overtly political, my work raises questions about habitat conservation and water as the new black gold. I am deeply involved in the California native plant movement."

Exhibition runs August 2 through November 2, 2014

Gallery open to the public daily, 10 a.m. - 4 p.m.

Admission to the gallery is included with standard admission or membership. The gallery is located just east of the Gift Shop in the main administration building. Click here to download the artist's statement.

Plants Interact! announcement

Free with Garden admission or membership.

The Container Garden's new exhibit is an inspirational fusion of horticulture, science, and art that focuses on plants' interactions with their environment.

Step off the mesa path and learn about plants' interactions: reproduction and fruiting, grasses and wind pollination, succulents and water storage, and summer flowering plants. Each room in the Container Garden will focus on a different type of interaction with interpretive signage.
