Green Places Gallery Talk
April 20 @ 9:30 am - 11:00 am$10 – $15
On Saturday, April 20, join Esther Pullman at the Cape Ann Museum for an artist-led tour of Green Places/Green Spaces/Greenhouses. In 1999, Esther Pullman began photographing places where plants were cultivated—fields, nurseries and most of all greenhouses. The project began without an overt message in mind. However, in the nearly 20 years since then, it has revealed many themes and deeper meanings: the passage of time, the cycle of the seasons, death and rebirth. It has also become a metaphor for our threatened planet.
The panoramic color photographs shown in Green Places/Green Spaces/Greenhouses explore the distinctive architecture, light and atmosphere of greenhouses throughout the year. Each panorama consists of two to seven photographs, composed as much as possible as independent and autonomous images. When exhibited side by side, the result is a continuous composition. The greenhouses Pullman has captured include those that are in use today as well as those that have been shuttered, their gardening equipment and machinery left to decay. A number of the panoramas in the exhibit feature local Cape Ann structures.
