How did artists render the fading colors of Autumn in paint over the centuries? This seminar will look forward to the Autumn. Will we be able to travel again and experience the changing of the seasons from close by? Let us look forward to a bright future!

In this series, we will be looking at how artists depicted the different seasons throughout the ages. How is springtime celebrated over the ages? The heat and sweat from the hot summer months? The autumnal festivities of bringing in the harvest, the making of wine, hunting for game, with the last of the summer glow. The hardships of winter, storms, and snow, icy weather, and the comfort of a fireplace.

In this seminar we head into Autumn: if we are lucky the weather stays nice for a while, but we notice that it gets cooler at night and the leaves are changing color. It is the season of harvesting fruits, filling our larders with sufficient supplies of meats and vegetables. And in October, the grape harvest is at its peak and the promise of wine.

Led by an expert on the history of gardens and landscapes, Dr. Alette Fleischer, this interactive seminar will reflect on how humans experience the changing of the seasons. Designed to inform curiosity as well as future travels, participants will come away with an increased awareness that looking forward to a new season is key to our wellbeing.

This conversation is part of a four-part series with Alette Fleischer. Each session is designed as a stand-alone seminar as well as part of a four-week series.
