Sharon and I made…we hope…our last trip to the Knight Library at University of Oregon on Wednesday…a foggy morning on the freeway
We are preparing (“independent curators” we like to think) a show on the Salem landscape architects Elizabeth Lord and Edith Schryver, and their work in the region from 1929 to 1960. All the drawings are stored in HUGE folders and each drawing we plan to use must be measured
and photographed (not “fine” photography here, only notation…)
and when our task was complete we went to the nice little cafe (“Marche”) attached to the art museum
for a celebratory coffee:
The show will open on June 22, 2011, at the Hallie Ford Museum of Art in Salem, and run until September 18. We will have lectures and garden tours, more information will be forthcoming.
