A new body of work created by local artist Carrie Leigh Dickey will be on display in the Historic Bethabara Park Visitor Center from September 4 through September 23. Entitled, “And then I saw the garden,” the show reflects the inspiration and healing that Carrie finds within her garden. Carrie shares: “It is the place where I experience peace. I talk to birds. I watch the bees and butterflies. I grow. I thrive. I listen.”
So that others might experience the rejuvenating effects of a garden, Carrie is donating proceeds from the sale of her art towards the restoration of the Park’s Medicinal Garden. Designed by Doctor Hans Martin Kalberlahn in 1756, the garden is the first European Medicinal Garden planted in America.
Opening Reception, which is also free and open to the community, will be held on Sunday, September 10, from 2 p.m. until 4 p.m.
