SPECIAL EVENT: HortiCULTURE Salon Series: The Nature of the River

October 3, 2013 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

HortiCULTURE Salon Series: The Nature of the River
Thursday, Oct. 3, 7 to 8:30 p.m.
Public $15; Members $10
Liz Menard, visual artist, printmaker, educator and TBG art instructor, perceives the Don River as a living entity and ponders what the river would tell us if “it remembered the time before pavement”. Join Liz as she wanders, remembers and questions the complex ecologies of the Don River. With curiosity sparked by a 1880s pre-channelization map, she combines the river’s history based on maps, documents and texts from the Toronto Archives with present-day observations of what the river might tell us. In this lively talk, Liz will trace the process of creating her award-winning, limited edition, hand-printed and hand-bound artist’s book, Nature of the River, as well as other etchings from her Nature of the River series.
Liz Menard [PG13F22]
