Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Easton (horticultural librarian, Univ. of Washington), author of the "Plant Life" column in the Seattle Times, and journalist Laskin team up with prize-winning garden photographer Mandell to portray the gardens of ten Northwest artists. While these working artists are less well known than those included in Bill Laws's Artists' Gardens (LJ 2/1/00), they are more intimately involved with the creation of their own gardens. The authors also offer more analysis of their subjects' art and how the artists' aesthetic senses influence their garden design. Each chapter concludes with a one-page summary called "the artist's eye," highlighting what makes each artist's vision unique. The gardens are all inspirational in the way they use color and design, the integration of art objects and plants, and an approach to using ornaments that is whimsical, to say the least. The glorious photography, which makes it seem as if the sun always shines in the Northwest, highlights a common urge for brightness and helps the reader visualize the artists' individualistic approach to gardening. This book offers a refreshing approach to what a garden can be and what it can contain. Recommended for all gardening collections.

    The Art of Gardens and the Gardens of Art

    A fresh look at gardening featuring a diverse group of Northwestern artists from a pastoral painter to kitsch collectors , a stonecarver to a ceramacist--the individual visions of these artists come together as interpreted through great prose and visuals to die for. I hope this trio does a national and international version of this idea because it brings together my two loves art and gardening.
