French parks & gardens, Anne Appleby

Episode No. 336 of The Modern Art Notes Podcast features curator and author Colta Ives and artist Anne Appleby. Ives, a curator emerita at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, is the author of "Public Parks, Private Gardens: From Paris to Provence," and the co-curator (with Susan Alyson Stein) of the Met's exhibition of the same title. The show looks at how developments in landscape design, horticulture and the opening up of royal property combined to focus (mostly) 19thC French artists on parks and gardens. It's on view through July 29. Amazon offers the exhibition's excellent catalogue for $38. On the second segment, artist Anne Appleby discusses new work she's showing in "We Sit Together the Mountain and Me" at the Tacoma Art Museum. The exhibition, which is on view through June 3, was curated by Rock Hushka. Appleby's work is held by the Portland Art Museum, the Denver Art Museum, the Berkeley Art Museum, SFMOMA, and more. See images of art discussed on the program.
