Join fellow garden enthusiasts and book lovers as they discuss books about plants, nature, and the environment. “Nature’s Narratives”is a book discussion group sponsored by the Scott Arboretum wherereaders come together to discuss a book once a month and share in thereading experience.

Old Herbaceous: Novel of the Garden byReginald Arkell is a classic British novel of the garden, with a titlecharacter as outsized and unforgettable as P. G. Wodehouse’s immortalbutler, Jeeves. Born at the dusk of the Victorian era, Bert Pinnegar,an awkward orphan child with one leg a tad longer than the other,rises from inauspicious schoolboy days spent picking wildflowers anddodging angry farmers to become the legendary head gardener “OldHerbaceous,” the most esteemed flower-show judge in the county and afamed horticultural wizard capable of producing dazzling Aprilstrawberries from the greenhouse and the exact morning glories his Ladyspies on the French Riviera, “so blue, so blue it positively hurts.”Sprinkled with nuggets of gardening wisdom, Old Herbaceous is awitty comic portrait of the most archetypal—and crotchety—headgardener ever to plant a row of bulbs at a British country house.

The discussions are free and open to the public.Participants will need to read each month’s selection prior to thediscussion. Refreshments and coffee will be provided. RSVP online orcall 610-328-8025.

Books will not be supplied, but one copy of each is available in the Scott Horticultural Library for check-out and members of the Scott Arboretum enjoy lending priviledges. Call to register 610-328-8025. Limited to 12.

Ted Lott: Architectonic
10/25/2015
12:00 PM
5:00 PM
This event recurs daily until 9/10/2015.
The List Gallery, Swarthmore College is pleased to present Ted Lott: Architectonic, the artist's first solo exhibition in the Philadelphia region. Lott will lecture about his work on Thursday, September 10, 4:30 p.m., in the Lang Performing Arts Center Cinema. A public reception will follow in the List Gallery. 5:30-7 p.m. Free admission is made possible by the Department of Art, Swarthmore College and the Donald J Gordon Visiting Artist Fund. Gallery hours are Tuesdays through Sundays, Noon–5 p.m. The exhibition closes on October 25, 2015.Architectonic brings together mixed media sculptures that evoke the vernacular structures of American domestic architecture. Often incorporating found chairs or cases, and ranging in scale from intimate boxes to ten-foot-tall frameworks of slender pine, Lott transforms ordinary objects into hybrid structures that animate and enliven the spaces they inhabit. Lott prompts us to reflect upon contradictory aspects of the human condition. Yearning for stability, domesticity, and comfort, we also wrestle with itinerancy, fragility, transience, and transformation. Lott received a B.F.A. in Woodworking and Furniture Design from the Maine College of Art before going on to receive an M.F.A. from University of Wisconsin, Madison in 2011. Born and raised on the shores of Lake Michigan, Lott has resided in twelve different states and visited every one but Alaska. A 2012 recipient of an Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation grant, he has been awarded residencies by prestigious institutions including Anderson Ranch Arts Center, Kohler Arts/Industry Program, Haystack Mountain School of Crafts, the Center for Turning and Furniture Design and Vermont Studio Center. His sculpture, furniture, and public art has been exhibited in museums and galleries across the country. Solo exhibitions of his work have recently been presented by Storrs Gallery, University of North Carolina; and Artisan Gallery, Paoli, WI. His work has also been included in numerous group exhibitions including at Blue Spiral One, Asheville, NC; Anne Wright Wilson Gallery, Georgetown, KY; Rose Contemporary, Portland, ME; Urban Institute for Contemporary Art, Grand Rapids, MI; and Chazen Museum of Art, Madison, Wisconsin. Lott currently lives and works in Cooperstown, New York.
