Pleasures of the Garden: visualizing the Song of Songs, an exhibition curated by Alice Dubiel

In collaboration with the Song of Songs Music Festival at St. James Cathedral, Seattle, local artist Alice Dubiel is curating an exhibition featuring works especially created for this event in the cathedral’s chapel. The poetic texts evoke gardens, plants and the loyalties among people, both private and civic. Several of the artists keep gardens, maintain labyrinths, work with plant imagery or abstracted natural forms. Such sources inspire art and text celebrating the lush landscape, the intimacy of an enclosed garden, and domestic employment. The exhibition will be on display April 15 through May 31, 2010.
