Art in the Garden: Ross Barbera Landscape and Flower Paintings

September 1 @ 8:00 am - October 25 @ 5:00 pm

The Queens Botan­i­cal Gar­den will host a new exhi­bi­tion by artist Ross Bar­bera enti­tled Land­scape and Flower Paint­ings. Cre­ated in acrylic on can­vas, or water­color on paper, the paint­ings explore the visual inter­ac­tion that occurs between streams, ponds and bod­ies of water with their sur­round­ing land­scape envi­ron­ments; and they cap­ture close up views of inti­mate for­est set­tings where the rec­og­niz­able can seem abstract.

Greenways NYC

As cat­a­lysts for alter­na­tive trans­porta­tion, con­nec­tions between com­mu­ni­ties and parks, and stormwa­ter man­age­ment strate­gies, green­ways build upon a legacy of Fred­er­ick Law Olmsted’s “park­ways” that linked cit­i­zens to urban green spaces in a pre-automotive era. Now, as bicy­cle com­mut­ing becomes increas­ingly viable, green­ways sup­port link­ages across the urban envi­ron­ment. Fur­ther­more, they often offer eco­log­i­cal resiliency through plant­i­ngs and new habi­tats. Designs recall, or even incor­po­rate New York City’s long his­tory of indus­try, infra­struc­ture and plan­ning. But what makes a path a Greenway?
