Event description
Join us for a closing reception for Hill-Stead's exhibit of paintings by Christian Peltenburg-Brechneff, "Into the Garden."

About this Event

Join us Sunday, October 6th from 4-6pm to view the Hill-Stead exhibition of artwork by artist Christian Peltenburg-Brechneff, during this special closing reception.

The evening will include a lecture from Brechneff about his works and new book, "Into the Garden;" a vibrantly-colorful selection of artworks depicting twenty-eight (28) exclusive and inspiring gardens around the world.

Over the past three decades, Brechneff has often traded his traditional artist studio for the expansive possibilities of working directly in these exquisite settings, immersing himself in terrains both near and far—from Lunuganga in tropical Sri Lanka to the Aegean Island of Sifnos.

Translating the immediate and sublime presence of nature with painterly impressions en plein air, Brechneff pays homage to the resplendent beauty of the garden and the visionaries who created them.

Among them are the gardens of masterful designers such as Geoffrey Bawa, Bruce Kelly, Bunny Williams and John Rosselli.

Beguiling and ideally gift-sized, "Into the Garden," chronicles Brechneff’s long-term pilgrimage, opening these exquisite private gardens to the public through vivid expressions in oil, watercolor, and gouache.
