The Artists' Garden

Irby Pace, 2014 Artist-in-Residence

This November Arboretum Artist-in-Residence, Irby Pace, shares his photographic vision of the gardens. His photographs will be on display in the Rosine Hall Gallery November 3 - December 5. During the summer months, Irby worked in the garden transforming unique garden spaces into works of art. Through his photographs he will share his experience at the Arboretum and invite guests to view the garden through a new lens.

On Saturday, November 8, join Irby for an opportunity to view the beloved gardens from a new perspective. He will offer two very different workshops where he will share his experience working at the Arboretum during the residency and give a glimpse into his different processes. In the workshop “Photographing in Nature” Irby will combine lecture and field work to share some of the basics of shooting outdoors. He will cover site selection, basic camera information and techniques as well as when and where to shoot to create the best photographs. This class is aimed at beginning photographers. Following class, join us for a reception to celebrate the opening of Irby’s exhibit. The reception, which takes place between 11:30 a.m. – 1 p.m., is free with General Garden Admission. After the reception, Irby will lead another workshop on Polaroid transfers. This alternative method of processing Polaroid photos offers a unique and artistic way to transform your photos in to works of art.

For more details on his workshops, or to register, please visit our photography classes and visit “The Artists’ Garden – A Digital Perspective”.

Artist Statement:The floating phenomenons in my photographs fill the void of the urban and natural landscapes. I alter the real physical space with real floating colorful clouds of smoke and allow nature to dictate the shape and duration. This allows me to capture the momentary glimpse of the vacant space. By using crude and readily available resources, I am experimenting with the tension of upward or outward movement against the downward force of gravity, creating the illusion of gravity defiance.
