Arts Picks: “Two Gardens”

Arts Picks: “Two Gardens”

At Form + Content Gallery

St. Paul artist Joyce Lyon has created an interesting visual meditation on two different gardens: One is a series of Roman frescoes from 40-20 BC called Livia’s Garden Room and the other is in her backyard. By juxtaposing paintings inspired by gardens that existed 2,000 years apart, Lyon considers the meaning of gardens and how artistic approaches to rendering them have change over millennia.
