Many will remember Chuck Newhall from his 2016 Art Talk about his memoir, Fearful Odds, an inspiring story of how he overcame his psychological injuries from combat in Vietnam.
This year, the Deer Crest Club welcomes him back to discuss his new book, Brightside Gardens. The form and shape of Brightside Gardens began as a reflection of the colors and patterns within the Newhall home, and the classical and neoclassical references appear throughout the gardens. The narrative that accompanies this brilliant collection of over 250 images of plants, trees, statuary, water and stone helps to elevate our understanding of human nature through the stories these gardens tell.
From the symmetry of Undine’s Garden to the majestic view from Brant’s Balustrade, every one of the 54 gardens of Amy and Charles Newhall tells a unique and poignant story. A feast for the eye. A dialogue between the head and the heart. Both of Newhall’s books will be available for sale and signing thanks to Dolly's Bookstore.
