Plein Air in Hestia’s Private Garden

May 18, 2019 | 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

We’re inviting poets and artists for a painting and poetry party!

Hestia’s Garden is opening up their private gardens for this Plein Air community painting event, sponsored by the Western Sullivan Public Library.  Designed by Darlene Midlang to nurture body and soul, the perennial, vegetable, and herb gardens are ensconced in eight acres of meadows and woods.

There is an orchard, and wandering paths that will take the explorer to Buck Brook Creek and the old pond stocked with fish. The planted berms hold primarily native plants and were created using lasagna gardening techniques. The vegetable garden is a series of circles, suggesting a mandala.

There are so many beautiful ways to frame the landscapes, you’ll be hard pressed to settle on a place to set up. PLUS live music by Nick Roes throughout the day.

As always, we’ll have art supplies and facilitators for beginners, and experienced artists are welcome to bring their own set-up. Check out the Hestia’s Garden website.  A light lunch is included.

All are invited to attend.  No prior experience necessary.

This project is made possible in part with funding from the Decentralization Program, a regrant program of the NYS Council on the Arts and administered by the Delaware Valley Arts Alliance.
