This program of art and horticulture is organized in conjunction with PAFA’s exhibition The Artist’s Garden: American Impressionism and the Garden Movement, 1887 – 1920, curated by Anna O. Marley (PhD, 2009). Bringing together paintings, sculpture, books, and stained glass, the exhibition tells the story of American Impressionist artists and the growing popularity of gardening as a middle-class leisure pursuit at the turn of the 20th century. Among the artists whose works are included are: Hugh Henry Breckinridge, Cecilia Beaux, William Merritt Chase, Maria Oakey Dewing, Frederick Carl Frieseke, Childe Hassam, Violet Oakley, Jessie Willcox Smith, John H. Twachtman, and J. Alden Weir.
