2021 Lecture Series: The Pleasure Garden
Apr 21 at 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm$5 – $15
Jeffrey Bale is an Oregon native residing in the beautiful city of Portland. It was an early trip to Spain and Portugal that introduced Jeffrey to the “Art of Mosaic.” When he returned home, he taught himself how to build pebble and tile mosaics and frequently uses them to embellish his garden designs for clients (including at Dan Hinkley’s Windcliff) and for himself. He has also studied the art of stone carving in India. Jeffrey’s view of “Pleasure Gardens” is almost mystical; he sees salient details that many of us would miss. He has a profound appreciation for the natural world, so the gardens he builds are complimentary to the natural environments surrounding them, while at the same time being places to immerse oneself in a setting of inspiring and meaningful beauty. During his PowerPoint presentation, he will show us some of the gardens he has encountered during his worldwide travels, including the famed Alhambra in Spain. $5 members/$15 non-members.
