Peter Crane with Laura Gates: Perspectives on Nature
Tue, Nov 7 at 2pm
Peter Crane is President of the Oak Spring Garden Foundation in Virginia which includes a renowned garden and unique library founded by Rachel Lambert Mellon. He takes us on a behind the scenes tour of the estate and shares treasures from the library, which contains the exquisite botanical art of Scottish painter and musician Rory McEwen, the subject of his new book and forthcoming exhibition at the Gibbes Museum of Art. Peter Crane, Senior Research Scientist at the Yale School of the Environment and former Director of the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew in London, will be in conversation with Charleston Literary Festival Board member Laura Gates.
