Rendezvous in Monet’s Garden

Not that you’d need another excuse to visit Ohio (it is the official birthplace of aviation, after all, and the duct tape capital of the world) but an upcoming exhibition at the Columbus Museum of Art may give you cause to book your B&B now: Rendezvous in Monet’s Garden; Ideas, Insights & Inspiration from the Painter’s Garden Saturday, October 27, 9:30 – 11:30 AM.
Here’s the skinny: Elizabeth Murray, photographer, author, and
gardener, will share her experiences assisting with
the restoration of Monet’s Garden at Giverny. Her
photographs, taken during all seasons, illustrate
the story of Monet the painter, t
he gardener, and
the man. She will reveal the design elements,
color, and plant combinations that Monet used to
create this great work of art—his garden. Following the presentation, guests will enjoy
French pastries and coffee at a reception and
book signing in Derby Court.
The cost is $40 for members and $45 for
nonmembers. Purchase tickets online or order
by phone at 614.629.0309.

(Lest you think I don’t heart the state of Ohio, I’ll recommend two of Cincinnati’s excellent museums: the Contemporary Arts Center, designed by renowned architect Zaha Hadid, and the Cincinnati Art Museum, which houses more than 60,000 works spanning 6,000 years. We also have very interesting ice cream and famous chili. And a theme park where they filmed an episode of the Brady Bunch.)
